The Washington Flour Company used to sell something called "Spoon Bread." Please see link: Home.

Well, boohoo, they no longer make it. Has anyone come across a packaged spoon bread mix that is made by/sold in Wegman's or Whole Foods or Trader Joes or Bloom, etc? Giant and Safeway no longer sell it. So often now, many of the grocery stores manufacture their own version of certain products.

The Washington Flour Company offers the spoon bread recipe on its website, but the site is being a little bear and is having a hissy fit between Firefox and Adobe Reader on my system, so I'm going to have to fumble a bit to get the recipe printed out.

I would rather have the box mix because I too often buy ingredients for one recipe, make it once, don't make the recipe again for eons, and then find that the ingredients have expired.

If anyone has seen Spoon Bread mix in their travels about town, I sure would appreciate a heads up. I'm making barbecue spare ribs for Thanksgiving, and I want spoon bread as one of the side dishes. Smack, smack.

Many thanks!!!

There's a company in Ashland, VA, called Byrd Mill that offers a spoon bread mix. Here's a link to their site: Byrd Mill - 18th C Spoon Bread Mix Hope that helps, though I have not seen it in the stores.

Williamsburg Marketplace from Colonial Williamsburg sells a mix online as well as in its stores: Spoon Bread Mix. Good luck!

Thanks for the effort bmwguydc and Doppelganger69!

I, too, found Spoon Bread on the web at the following link: Spoonbread Mix (http://www.weisenberger.com/category.cfm?Category=31&CFID=2979&CFTOKEN=3340017 5 - broken link).

Great price for a 5-lb. bag! However, I'm not sure it would get here in time. Some companies don't count the weekend as processing days, and it is already just about Friday. They may not ship the item out until Monday, and I need to have this cooked on Thursday. That's why I was trying to see if I could find it locally.

I switched my browser to Internet Explorer and was able to print out the Washington Flour Company spoon bread recipe, so I'll probably just go ahead and make it myself. I gotta have it.

Ahhh, Washington Flour....that sure brings back memories of "old" DC.

Washington Flour used to be in Georgetown smack by the Whitehurst Freeway. Their concrete silos were landmarks!

Unfortunately, their next door neighbor was a rendering plant (can you imagine that...in Georgetown?!)....anyway the rendering plant put out a stench that you smell for miles.

Washington Flour had a huge sign informing passers-by that the foul smell was NOT coming from Washington Flour! LOL

There's a brand of pre-packaged soul food sauces, mixes, etc. carried by Shoppers called "Sylvie's" or "Sylvia's" - a spoonbread mix would seem to be right up their aisle, no pun intended. I've been trying to find it online, but must not have the spelling exactly right. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Believe it or not, World Market sometimes sells mixes like that. If there's one near you, it's worth taking a look.
