As I was in search of way to use up my squash crop, I ran across this recipe at It was submitted by: THE HOOVE and stated: "The Iroquois Indians cultivated and used the Three Sisters (corn, squash and beans) in their diet. This is a recipe passed down by our relatives. You may use regular corn instead of hominy, but hominy is more traditional."
