Indian Succotash Recipe

Sucatash Featured.jpgThis week my son is working on a project for class about Indians and as part of his presentation, asked if I would help him prepare a dish that he could share with his classmates. I am not much of a wiz in the kitchen so I was thrilled when he suggested succotash. Thrilled because I knew what it was… and because it was easy to prepare… Phew.

Following is the recipe we used in making our Indian Succotash dish.
