For my friend who needs something groovy for a multicultural potluck at her munchkins’ school, here is a recipe I learned in Nome for agutaq (also known as Eskimo Ice Cream). Agutaq is traditionally made with tallow, seal oil, berries and sometimes, fish flakes.
Here is a picture of what traditional agutaq looks like:
This recipe is a more western version (no fish flakes).
3 cups Crisco
2 cups sugar
6 cups blueberries or cranberries, rinsed, drained and patted dry
water as necessary
How it’s made:
Beat the Crisco and sugar together, adding water as necessary, until whipped and fluffy. Fold berries in with a spatula. Serve with crackers, chocolate wafer cookies, or something similar.
Not for everyone, but some people really like it.
