“The Native Americans cooked in clay pots. But if you put a clay pot on the fire it would crack as it heated up,” he said.
“So they would put their meat, vegetables and water in the pot, then heat up these small rocks in the fire and drop them in the pot to cook their food,” Luckenbach said.
He said archaeologists find pot remnants with similar stones, or pot boilers, in them.
