I love holder h istoric recipes that have been handed down for generations in a family. You're right, they are truer to the original. I can understand how some recipes get changed with the advent of more convenience food, etc., but it's those old recipes that I love. Lots of comfort and memories.Originally Posted by Lucy;3193988;
I can't wait to make it again. I had some leftovers for breakfast this morning.
Of course, I am a lover of anything with cornmeal and anything resembling cornbread. I'm the only one in my family that will eat hushpuppies too. I'd rather have those than the fish they are usually served with.
Have you read the Cornbread Nation books? Volume 3 is "Foods of the Mountain South". I have one and two, but haven't gotten around to getting 3 and 4 yet.
And now for a recipe:
I made the To Die For Pot Roast, but made it as stew. I used stew meat and I added potatos, carrots, onion, mushrooms and celery and a tad bit more water and it was TO DIE FOR STEW!!! My family is now hooked on this and it's SO easy. And such great flavor.
