NATIVEWAY ANUH'S CHEROKEE BEAN BALLS

1 1 1 1 cup cup

water ground corn meal cooked beans with juice salt

First put on a large pot of water so that it will be boiling when you are ready for it. DO NOT ADD SALT TO THE WATER.... Mix equal quantities (try 1 c.: 1 c. first, to see if you like them) ground corn meal and cooked beans with juice (pinto beans are what I usually use but any good dry bean will work fine). Add more bean juice if necessary to make it damp, but not too wet. DO NOT ADD SALT. Take a quantity in hand and roll into a ball. Drop in rapidly boiling water and let cook. When it floats to the top, it is done. Most of the time the water will have washed off some of the cornmeal in these forming a gravy of its own. Serve in a bowl, NOW salt to taste, cover with the pan gravy and eat..... Very simple, very nutritious and very traditional.
