Right? We obviously need to send out a posse to search for our lost/missing incomes. But then again with the vast numbers of personal contacts we should already have available due to our top secret positions, it should be a no brainer..

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 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.

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.

I have a big collection of cast iron skillets. So my cornbread especially is always made in one of them with the oil heated enough to sizzle when the batter hits it. I've even got my Grandma's huge cast iron chicken frying skillet with the cast iron lid too!! I'd not take ten thousand dollars for it.... Seriously, it's that special to me.
I have an entire collection of iron skillets of all sizes. After washing, I wipe them out with a mixture of salt and grease to keep them from rusting and from sticking when they are used next. Old folks used sand instead of salt. The huge one with a lid, I call it a "Dutch Oven". Why? Because that is what Granny called it. LOL

I have had one flu shot in my life and I don't know what I was thinking. I don't plan on getting another one. It didn't make me sick or anything. I just do not trust vaccines! Shoot, look what they are doing to kids with all the vaccines - ADD-ADHD, Autism, etc. No thanks!
I was with him for about three days but I thank God I didn't get it!
I have gotten a flu shot every year for the past 20 years and a pneumonia shot every 5 years. I have never had either of those illnesses in my life. I don't know if those shots are doing me harm or any good, but they don't seem to be hurting.(knock on wood). I think much illness is attributed more so to life-style. All those conveniences like central heat and air blowing particles around does not seem good to me. I sleep with a window cracked for fresh air regardless of the temperatures.

As far as the poster saying that the discussion of meaningless banter such as cornbread is one way to "side track" a thread with mis/disinformation.

It seems to be that corn bread or the caos in the Middle East are neither one about dead birds. This thread seems to have no track and it seems to just be a matter of personal preference as to what a group wishes to discuss or not discuss. Bring on the "meaningless" banter. LOL

WOW, now that's some exotic cornbread!! I have everything here to try out a batch, too. I'm sure I'll like it because I like all the ingredients in it, hehe! Thanks!! I'll let ya know now it turns out after I make some for us.
I've read where you mentioned that cookbook before. Where did you get it?
I ask because also have a big cast iron stew pot, guess modern folk would call it a Dutch oven, with the lid. Those skillets and pots are priceless as far as I'm concerned. As long as you keep them seasoned and NEVER, EVER, let a drop of soap touch them, they'll last till the end of time...
I still use a heavy cast 11" pan for cornbread that my great grandmother used from about 1880, and gave to my grandmother when she married in 1916. It skipped my mother as it was given to me,, so I know it's over 133 years old. I tried last year to identify it and know it's not Wagner or Griswold , but no luck in locating the mfg. I even made a cheesecake in it and it fell out like it was baked in ceramic. I feel I'd disrespect my grands by not using it.

Lord, welcome to the club. I've been a Mod, a Nazi, a rat, a con, some lady in town who's an administrator at a local health care facility, and a professionally compensated liar, hehe. Wonder where all of these employers have been sending these payroll checks I seem to be missing.. I surely could use the spare change. Christmas put a bite in the old bank account, LOL!
Odd that no one accused me of being Santa Claus.
Maybe just an elf... Hmmmmm.
I've always suspected you to be an alien, sent to earth to find intelligent life by using topix as a beta tester, that or Santa Claus.:)

Good morning AW. A lot of people do get the flu shots, no doubt. I'm just chicken. lol To me the pneumonia shot would be more important so I might would consider it. I had rather TRY to stay healthy on vitamins, minerals, herbs and things like apple cider vinegar, garlic, elderberry, etc. When I do get sick I use all of the above for treatment.
Oh yes I agree about our life-style causing a lot of our illnesses. Between that and all we are doing to our food from the ground/hoof to our plate is killing us.

Ok call me a nerd but I think that is so cool.:) I can just imagine your great grandmother using that skillet. I have a couple of those old Morgan Silver Dollars from about 1880. I look at those things and my imagination starts running wild wondering where all those things have been, who had them, how hard they had to work to get them, what they spent them on, and on and on. I love that kind of thing. That kind of makes history come to life!

I was just saying yesterday that I bet that would be good. I have heard of people using apple sauce in recipes too. I have never heard of wiping your cast iron with salt. I'll have to try that!

Oh yeah I have seen my mom make coffee that way. Her and my boyfriend were talking about that just the other day. I have heard (or read) about "hoe cakes." Looks to me like a shovel would have worked better, but shovel cake just don't sound right. lol I make cornbread like that a lot too, but in a cast iron skillet like you. haha

salt and grease, especially in one you dont want to stick for frying eggs etc. You can even wash them if you use the salt and grease afterwards, then wipe clean.

As for History, I have my great grandfather's smoking pipe and his wife's little wire rim glasses, a hand made walking cane made from a briar vine, my mother's old cast irons she heated on top of the wood stove, my dad's fireplace popcorn popper, his old cross cut saw, grndpappy's horse hames, my grandmother's kerosene lamp, and the white metal dipper that hung out by the spring house.

All those items decorate my outside back wall that is finished in barn lumber that was removed from my uncles's old barn. I like to look at all that stuff and UNA even laughed at me for getting a little tobacco and trying to smoke my great grandfather's pipe while looking up on the hill and trying to think about him up there following a team of mules somewhere around the time of the Civil War. The pipe tobacco was too strong to inhale so I just puffed enough to get the aroma to add to my nostalgic thoughts. LOL

SALT!!! H E double L NO ! OMG! I've heard of that, I guess it came from never washing your old seasoned wooden bread mixing bowls, salt would CUT the drying flour out and not harm the bowl but salt is hard and abrasive and will cut thru that wonderful seasoning that took years to develop in the cast iron skillet like granite paper. Ug, your killing me here,, lol. You can wash the cast in ver hot water, hotter the better, don't use chemicals or soap, wipe it and let it dry. If that does not do it, season it and stick it in the oven at about 400 deg for an hour or two,,wipe it out and let it cool in the over until room temp. NEVER add cold anything to a hot skillet, it can crack. Kill me,,just kill me.

If your cast iron skillets and pots build up residue, you can throw them into an open flame and burn all that stuff off. Much like a self-cleaning oven.

I would never use salt on anything wooden, but it does not hurt cast iron if mixed with grease. Years ago when I worked in fast food, the grills were even cleaned with salt and grease.

Cast is not supposed to be used in restaurants anymore because laws state soap or detergent must be used to clean all cooking utensils and it defeats the purpose, but I see it's still done where the health inspectors do not frequent. Yes I've seen the salt used and host of other items but on a molecular level salt can seep into the pan such as it does into sidewalks when melting snow, the harm is done inside and slowly but it's done. Lard and Salt mix was used a lot, but so was ddt and asbestos, lol. Anyway, use them cast skillets people and if you cook too much, call me.

Mr. Scruff, you have sinned, you salt sinner. From this day forward you may not even think about touching chef Humpaburns cast iron cookware. It might be acceptable in fast food joints, but not in Humpaburns kitchen.

Well I have been using the salt and grease mix for nearly 50 years and it has not killed me or my skillets yet LOL I did not really work in fast food, back in the day it was known as "The Greasy Spoon" LOL

You folks have a good day, I have chores to do.
