Excellent!! Finally, a true Southern Cornbread recipe - NO SUGAR!! We had this once a week when my mother would cook an all southern vegetable meal for a break from the meat oriented meals during the rest of the week. We five kids loved it with yellow squash, yummy turnip greens, blackeyed peas and whatever was garden fresh that week. But our favorite use for this cornbread recipe was for Thanksgiving Turkey Dressing to - die - for. Lots of chopped onions, celery and giblets....cooked in the turkey and in a cast iron pan so it would be all crunchy. Heavenly with fresh cranberry sauce and turkey and gravy and sweet potatoes...oh my!! Absolute perfection.
If you want the truly authentic Southern Cornbread recipe version use bacon grease in the cast iron pan rather than lard. No corn kernels or jalapenos or cheese for the purist. This is in no way meant to please a sweet tooth.
