Recipe submitted by a reader to the Sumter, SC, Tri-Weekly Watchman, July 8, 1861


Are you making this? 
1 spoonful coffee
1 spoonful corn meal; toasted

Original recipe makes 1 Serving



A very good coffee can be made, costing only 12 1/2 cents, by mixing one spoonful of coffee with one spoonful of toasted corn meal. Boil well and clear in the usual way. I have used it for two weeks, and several friends visiting my house say they could not discover anything peculiar in the taste of my coffee, but pronounced it very good. Try it, and see if we can't get along comfortably even while our ports are blockaded by the would-be king.
