There is a story about blueberries on my daughter's unit test for homeschool. It has been said that American Indians picked blueberries and turned it into tea, dried them in made it into a powder, and drank the juice to cure sickness and prepare the people for the long winters. It is possible that blueberries were on the menu at the First Thanksgiving.

My daughter learned that the blueberries were mixed with cornmeal and water to make blueberry mush. There was even a recipe for mush on the test...and she suggested that we try a little mush of our own this Thanksgiving feast. My DH and DD made it for breakfast and it was a yummy treat! Thank you, my little chef!

We had to add a touch of sugar to really enjoy it...but it was a fun lesson for the kids! Thank you for your comments!

We just made a similar Native American dish. Ours was cornmeal and water with cinnamon. Nobody liked it. Maybe we should try again with blueberries!
