Greatgrandmother's Southern Cornbread
This is a traditional southern cornbread recipe passed down to me by my great-grandmother. It goes wonderfully with greens, chile, hearty soups and stews, and is an essential component in a traditional cornbread stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving. It is important that white cornmeal by used, preferably stone-ground. Please note that yellow corn meal cannot be substituted. Also, for this recipe, the use of a cast iron skillet is essential.
