Orgin of Recipe: Offered by Makow (Michael J. ) Stillsmoking … who learned this from Grandmother

Type of Dish: Contemporary & Traditional


  • 1 cup of dried Sarvis, June, Service Berries
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup flour, approx.
  • Sugar
  • Directions:
    1. Boil berries in the water until soft.

    2. Slowly stir in flour until it begins to thicken.

    3. Sugar-sweeten to taste.

    (We modernize it some by adding a handful of blueberries for sweetness and color.)

    Note: Serve warm with your favorite bread (ours is fry bread).

    Berries can be used fresh too. The nuttier and sweeter the berries the better the flavor.

    In my grandmother’s day bits of cooked/dried meat were added to the soup.
