This is an annual event held in South Pittsburg TN between Chattanooga and Nashville. For those of you that are house-hunting in the area, head on down! This will give you a true "taste" of local "flavor"

You know, it doesn't surprise me that there's a National Cornbread Festival here . . . but I don't think I've ever heard of it.

I think I'l send that in to the Tennessee Crossroads folks. That sounds like something that they'd like to cover, if they haven't before at some time.

Default Cornbread Festival!!!!

I would go there in a minute if I were anywhere close! Anytime I make chili, or homemade soup, I make up a batch of cornbread. I also make Po' Boy's Cheesecake from cornmeal, johnnie-cake, and hoecakes. Hubby won't eat potato pancakes, and won't eat the hoecakes either. He won't eat beans of any sort, so, when I make lima beans and ham, or ham, green beans and potatoes, he won't eat that either. So, my brother in law gets the benefits of my cooking, as my sister won't cook those meals for him! LOL!

I love kale, collard greens, just about any green, and put it in my veggie stew. Anyone here familiar with ramps? It's similar to green onions, but grows wild, and is SUPER STRONG! Eat those, people can smell it coming out of your pores for days on end! My family is from WV, and ramps are a staple in the mountains.

One twist that I give my cornbread to make it nice and moist, is to put a can of creamed corn in the mix while I'm mixing it up.

blessings, Shen

By the way, if anyone wants to make cornbread, and haven't before, get a bag of White Lily cornmeal and follow the recipe on the back. It's a good, basic recipe.

I think cornbread is best made in an iron skillet. Frankly, I find the old-fashioned iron skillets hard to maintain. So I use a non-stick iron skillets made by Le Creuset of France (they are readily available here). I love the ones I have; all the benefits of cast iron without the hassle. They're a bit expensive, but last for a long time (not like those old Teflon coated things they sell in Wal-Mart).

I have heard of and seen several families/people from Jefferson county TN across to Western NC go ramp hunting and poke weed picking. I was lead to believe by some of these folks that ramps were wild garlic?????
As for Poke weed salad that so many rural old timers around these parts so enjoy and look forward to all winter long just scares me. If it gets to big, it is poisonous! But they love looking in the woods for the young poke weed shoots. I asked them about the dangers of getting sick and Mr. Miller just said, "awww....I've only gotten sick a few times in my life from it, you get better in a week or so...no big deal, they still worth it".
I took his word for it being good, but sorry, gonna pass on trying that local dish hahahahhahaha
