Mmmmm Cornbread
« on: October 12, 2005, 03:36:36 PM »

 I made yet another great pan of cornbread last Sunday to go with our dinner.
There is no secret famly recipe, no hidden ingredent. I just follow the instructions
on the back of a bag of Indian Head Cornmeal. 
I preheat my greased cast iron frying pan, pour in the cornmeal mix and walla
Darn good cornbread.

 I made Chilli and Cornbread a couple of weeks ago, I really like making chilli but it gives me indigestion something fierce! >:(

My famly was saying it was to warm for chilli but I beat them back with a thought
Wehere does chilli come from, do they wait for winter? ;)

and then I thought where does chilli come from?

So I ask, Where does Chilli come from? Chilli?

I luvs cornbread!  Especially when baked in a cast iron skillet.  My grandmother (it was Tom's grandmother too ;D ) used to fix a different kind of cornbread.  It was just white cornmeal, water and no salt (a tribute to the times after the War between the States after Sherman's march through Georgia leaving no salt).  I never cared for it without the salt so she would put cracklin' in it which made it salty enough.  I luvs Cracklin' Bread. 8)  Another thing she used to make using flour was something called Hoecake.  It got its name from the field hands that would put the dough on a hoe and hold it over a fire. She'd fill up a cast iron skillet with dough and cook it on a stove. The flip it into a plate, turn it over and slide it back into the skillet to cook the other side.  In our family, whenever we had cornbread or biscuits with our supper, then after supper we'd take some cornbread or biscuit, pour cane syrup over it and have that for dessert. Yum, yum! Remember that Tom? 8)

Mary makes good cornbread.  Ive got to have it with beans.

But the best I think I ever eat was down in Natchez Mississippi at a place called Cock of the Walk under the rivers edge.  

We stopped for the night there in Natchez on our way to New Orleans and asked where would be a good place to get catfish and we were directed there.  We had to wait a while before we got in and seated but the first thing that came to the table was a right out the oven skillet full of cornbread.  It was baked in a cast iron skillet that was divided into wedges.  They just turned the skillet over in the middle of the table and shook out the cornbread - have at it fashion.

It may just been a combination of where we were and how fresh it was out of the oven or how hungry we were but it was good.

I remember Grandmom's cornbread and hoecake too, Charlie.    I make one or the other about once a month

I just had some fried corn bread 3 days ago.  It was the real thin "fritter" kind, like Aunt Olivia's daughter, cousin Sarah would make.  Thin batter and almost deep fried so that most of it got kinda lacey and crisp.  I sat down in front of the TV with 3 of them about the size of your hand and ate them with butter.  It was better'n any ol' popcorn.  ;D

The corn bread recipe is in the knowledge base, by the way.  :P  :)

I think Johnny Cake is just another name for the Fried corn bread I mention.   It is composed of water and meal but salt and milk is usually added.  A batter about the consistancy of grits is spooned into deep hot grease in a hot cast iron skillet and it is fried like a pancake until browned on both sides.

 My Mother used to make cornbread cakes, looked like a pancake but MMMMMan were they good, she used them to make her stuffing which was, with out a doubt, the best I ever had.

Mom was a great southern cook, anyone who has met me knows it shows, and I have 4 brothers that are bigger!

Unfortunatley I don't have Mom's cornbread recipe but I sure can taste it now...

Liver gravy, blood sausage and lots of other things go good with corn bread.
Mom made jonny cake just like your corn bread but it had an egg in it. Realy nothing better than pure maole syrup on it.  Jonny cake and first boiling in the spring.

Johnny cake come from the term Journy cake  . In the 1700s they would make the cornbread for meals as they traveled  . Guess that it would last and not spoil like other foods.

I've ground sweetcorn into cornmeal and yep, it does make for some fine eatin'....but...I have a hard time gettin the critters to leave me enuff in the field to grind >:(...

So...

About once a year, I clean up the stone mill and grind up a 25 pound sack of unpopped Popcorn...makes some of the best tasting cornbread ya can eat, and tastes just about like ya imagine it would...

But sometimes people sure look at ya funny when ya take a sackful of "popcorn cornbread" to the theatre :D :D :D
