I love pork. Ham is one of few parts of the pig I won't eat. It never really did agree with my tastebuds.

I called my Okie mom after reading a similar thread. She puts a heaping tablespoon of sugar in her cornbread batter as did her mother (who was from the Ozarks of Arkansas). If she doesn't have buttermilk she uses a tablespoon of vinegar with regular milk. A heaping tablespoon of sugar in a bowl of batter does NOT turn it into that tall, sweet corn cake from the Northern states. Can't believe so many people wear their "sugarless cornbread" as some sort of Southern badge of authenticity. My family was in those states for hundreds of years and I don't think a little sugar in their cornbread turn them into a Yankee.

As far as grits go Dad was the only one who ate them and I don't think he put sugar in them. Funny thing was mom served hominy as a side dish sometimes (particularly with beans) and we all ate it.

My bag of cornmeal in the cupboard was milled in San Antonio, Texas (Pioneer brand). There are two recipes on the bag. One for Cornbread (no sugar) and one for Corn Muffins (yes sugar).

As far as I'm concerned, that is a recognized authority. However, I also think that there are a lot of people who think Cornbread and Corn Muffins are the same thing.

I am with you on this. I hate ham too. I will eat bacon, pork chops, pork loin etc but will not touch ham. For me I think its a texture issue.

I aslo refuse to eat sweeted cornbread. IMO it is gross...nothing like a corn meal cake...

Exactly. I just can't get with the texture or the saltiness.
