Alabama

The Yellowhammer State is a Deep South state situated along the Gulf of Mexico between Mississippi and Georgia. It is sometimes called “the Heart of Dixie.” The stars of Southern cooking shine on Alabama. Ribs, sweet potato pie, fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, catfish, hush puppies, sweet tea, fried pies, pralines, oysters, shrimp, and chicken and dumplings are just a sampling of the down-home cooking you’ll find in the Heart of Dixie. The pecan is the official nut of Alabama. The blackberry is the official fruit, but the peach also receives recognition as the official “tree fruit.” Honey is a big product. Alabama ranks second in the nation in farmed catfish production. But the largemouth bass is the state’s official fresh-water fish.
