I will take some corn bread crumbled up in a cold glass of milk. Grew up on that stuff packing it in a one gallon karo syrup bucket to a country school that had no cafeteria. Only problem was that it was not cold. LOL Oh the wonders of electricity.
Do you recommend using buttermilk in the cornmeal batter? I usually just throw in meal, flour,1tb. sugar,salt, oil and two eggs,water. Sometimes I'll substitute honey to give it a sweeter flavor. Thanks AW. I like having milk and cornbread;)

Unbelievable but true, a half a cup of buttermilk in your cake mix makes for a fluffier cake. My Mother told me that one. Oh, yuck I never could drink it though;) Put that up there with pigs' feet and souse. I like squirrel meat though fried in flour.

Buttermilk makes the best cornbread. But since I live rather remotely and don't get into town very often and like to conserve my regular milk for cereals and drinking, I keep a stash of Carnation Evaporated milk on hand. I use that in my coffee, making gravy, and add it with a touch of white vinegar to the other cornbread ingredients.

I like to use buttermilk in making cornbread, but not drinking it. I want regular milk with the crumbled cornbread. I don't care for cottage cheese either. If I am going to eat sweet cornbread, I will just have cake LOL

In the USA, for the past 200 years, there have been two main varieties of cornbread: Yankee and Southern. There are a lot of variations of each. The biggest difference is that Yankee cornbread is a lot sweeter, and has no buttermilk. Both of them tend to be very good, because making cornbread is a skill developed from generations of experiments with variations of the ingredients, till both varieties reached perfection. Every major family has a cornbread recipe somewhere, passed down through the generations. Some of those recipes are treated like heirlooms, and kept locked up with other ancient family treasures.

Grandad used carnation for his gravy.Hehe, he made it better than anybody I ever knew. Boy, what I wouldn't do for some fried apples, buttermilk biscuits and that gravy. Yummy...You and dog take care and have a pleasant night.

Pioneers had minimal cooking tools and cornbread cooked over hot coals on the end of a garden hoe came to be known as "hoe cakes". When I was a child fried cornbread was called "fritters". The only thing we called cornbread was baked in an iron skillet lined with grease and salt to keep it from sticking to the skillet.

Norwegians and other Scandinavian peoples make a potato bread known as "lefse". It is very popular in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Recipes are available online.

They also make something that I can't recall the name, but it is essentially made from ground up potatoes and salt pork and packed into a white cloth bag such as sausage. It is then sliced like sausage and fried and generally served with eggs for breakfast.

They also make something called "lutefisk" which I have never brought myself to try. The name translates to "lye fish". Fish is soaked in cold water for 4 or 5 days, then soaked a couple more days in a mixture of lye and cold water. No Thanks lol

But I am pretty sure this is the same process used to make hominy from hardened field corn and which can later have the hominy ground up to make grits.

All of this food talk! I am so hungry! Lol
Homemade hominy is something I'd love to try and potato cakes--- love 'em! Years ago when we lived in Minnesota we tried some sort of fish that had been soaked several days in some sort of brine. I've wondered if it was lutefisk. Btw, it was really good!
Speaking of keeping canned milk on hand, my mom always used Milnot for gravey. Come to think of it I haven't seen Milnot in years! Now that I'm curious guess I'll have to look on the grocery shelf next time I'm shopping.
AW. You say where you live is pretty isolated. Love it! We live 3 miles to the closest country highway and 5 miles from another more traveled highway. Until recently we were at the end of the county water line and we are the last stop on this section of electric line.
Anyway, Good Morning to each and every one of you! Hope your day is absolutely beautiful!!!

Whoops. "Bird Report" for this bird thread. Lol
Wednesday evening when I counted my little chicks....only 3 of them so they are easy to count...one was missing! Due to the fact two cars in the driveway had blood smears and bloody scratches on the windows by the side mirrors we sadly assumed our adventurous chick (about 3 months old) had met his untimely fate by some sort of crazy assault. Well! Last night when I shut up the 5 hens and 2 chicks I heard another "voice" , and there was little chick outside the pen asking to be let in. The feathers were somewhat disheveled but little chick was definitely hungry and thirsty. Exactly what is going on around here????

@Anne.. I live over a mile from the nearest 2 lane highway and at the end of the line for electric and telephone and my nearest neighbor is about a 1/2 mile away. My road is just barely one lane and if I meet my neighbor going the other way, one of us has to back up to let the other go around. Several miles into a town large enough to even have a grocery and is why I keep a stash of Carnation and other non-perishables.

My chicks are kept separated from the big guys or even themselves (based on age) and I only let the big chickens free range part of the day. I have 3 different chicken pens... 21 adult chickens, 8 about 3 months, and 6 just over a month and will set the incubator again in a few months when the 8 middle chicks merge with the adults.
