Tuscarora Snacks

Tuscaroras have many traditional snacks. One snack many Tuscaroras like is the Roast Seed Snack. Whole kernel corn, soy beans, pumpkin seeds, salt, and garlic powder will be necessary. The recipe for the Roast Seed snack is below.

whole kernel corn
soy beans
pumpkin seeds
salt, garlic powder

Place a small amount of oil in a heavy frying pan. You need just enough to coat the bottom of the pan. If you like, garlic may be added to the oil. Heat to medium-high. Add corn kernels and stir constantly. After a few minutes, reduce heat to medium. Stir kernels until they are golden brown. Remove the pan from the heat. (Remember that corn cooked to a very high temperature may explode!) Repeat this same procedure with the soy beans and the pumpkin seeds. Mix them all together, add salt if desired.
