Hey y'all! Back in April I blogged about my Boiled Peanut experience. The response was just awesome! So many recipe ideas and memories were shared and I couldn't have been more thrilled...THANK YOU for sharing. I haven't had a chance to try some of
the boiled peanut suggestions (especially the addition of bacon....yum!) but plan on it this summer.
Well, I have a new Southern Food Delicacy "issue". To recap I am a Yankee, born and raised in NY currently living in MA. I did go to college in SC and absolutely adore the South!!!! And no I am not at this time disclosing which SC college I went to
(too dicey :). Here's my problem: Fried Chicken. I love it but hate making it. I have tried EVERYTHING, frying it stovetop, frying it in a deep fryer even "Oven frying" it (yuck). It's not that mine comes out "bad" it's just not...well...Southern!!! The
flavor is fine but as strange as this might sound, when I make it it just doesn't have the same "mouth feel" as the chicken I had when I lived in SC.
So here it is friends, please share with this Yankee your Momma's/Grandmomma's/favorite Aunt's recipe, tips and/or techniques!
Much obliged, y'all!!!
