We have a "Shop" that we work at now, away from the house and little hands. We carve, build, repair butcher and store stuff there.
We leave coffe and carry water there, and leave a bit of food there too. We bulk buy different kinds of flour, different sugars, coffee, spices, noodles, onions, potatos, carrots and apples... and such.
Anyhoo, theres no cooking going on there, but its a ways from our house, so when the day was dragging, we all fell in for a quick old fashioned chow down , all drownd in Seal oil.
The lady's of the house were cold, tired and hungry, so they pulled A fast one in the shed , and in Eskimo manner ate with their fingers.
Black Meats...dyed Seal meat stored in Seal oil.....and plenty of Seal oil to boot.
Throw down a clean cardboard surface, get a froozen Whiltefish and a chunk of Caribou tenderloin from out side, and sharpen your Ulu....
throw ina spicy white onion, some carrots, and an apple, and you can hit every taste sensation....
And have at it.
Pretty soon , theres nothing left except the cardboard that gos into the fire place. Burns bright , I might add.
