I don't know if it was hot or cold LOL I just made what my ancestors called "hoe cakes".... mainly corn meal, with a little flour, egg, butter milk, and lard. My understanding is that "hoe cakes" name came from when the pioneers could not take much stuff along or when the slaves did not have much to start with and made the corn bread and cooked it on the end of a hoe held over an open flame either outdoors or in the fireplace. I did not use a hoe though LOL but an iron skillet.<quoted text>
Hi AW.:) Your kraut sounds good too, as well as the fried cornbread. Is it "hot water cornbread?" I love that stuff. My boyfriend was in the grocery today and he said at least half the buggies in the store had a head of cabbage in them. lol
I even thought about "boiling" some coffee but used the Mr. Coffee instead. Coffee was just boiled over the open flames and then add a little cold water to make the grounds sink to the bottom of the pot.
