    Want a real taste of the Canadian North? Try this popular local recipe for authentic Native Cree bannock bread made with either currants or raisins!

    First gather the following ingredients:

    6 Cups of flour - you can use whole wheat as well
    1 Cup of lard
    3 Tablespoons of baking powder
    1 Tablespoon of salt
    2 Cups of currants or raisins
    3 ˝ Cups of water


You’ll also need a medium sized mixing bowl.

In the bowl, mix the flour and lard together by hand. Then add the baking powder, salt and the currants or raisins. Once this is done, add the water and work the ingredients into a dough. Next, you have two options: the camp fire or the oven. To cook over a camp fire, divide the dough into four lumps and firmly wrap each lump around the end of a four foot stick and prop securely over the fire until golden brown. To cook in an oven, spread the dough out into a 16" square cake pan. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

NOTE: I soak my raisins in hot water first. Then if I really want it sweet, I use the raisin water in the recipe. You can also use craisins.

Serving Size: makes 16 pieces large pieces or 20 smaller ones
