Kneel Down Bread (Navajo Tamales) 7 ears fresh corn 2 tablespoons lard or shortening 1 cup water Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Scrape corn kernels from cob with a sharp knife, reserving husks.
Grind kernels in a blender and transfer to a bowl. Add lard or shortening and water to make a paste. Divide the mixture equally into seven husks. Tie husks at both ends, then gently bend husks in half and tie again. Wrap husks in aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour or until firm to the touch.
