Three Sisters & Succotash:
In olden times in the northeast section of what is now the United States, there were wild fruit trees, loaded with cherries, mulberries, figs, apples, pears, and peaches. You literally tripped over wild blueberries and strawberries and cranberries and wild vegetables.
The Iroquois Indians were grateful for the wild food they found. They were also very good farmers.
Farming provided most of the Iroquois diet.
Corn, beans, and squash were the most important crops. They were called the three sisters.
The three sisters were mixed together to make a vegetable dish called succotash.
