6. My granny from Guadalupe County couldn't afford to put sugar in the cornbread she

made for her family of 12. My Georgia grandmother made the best biscuits I've ever eaten. Her daughter, Louise, made the most beautiful and delicious cornbread ever. It was baked in a skillet and had the most beautiful, crispy brown exterior. The inside was corny, salty, and had a grainy, substantial texture on the tongue. I live in Georgia now and cannot eat what passes for cornbread in some of the restaurants around here or what is served at potluck gatherings. I call it "corn cake." Cornbread is made for soaking up pot likker, whether from beans or greens. If you want dessert, put lots of butter on it and pour on the molasses or sorghum syrup. Blackberry preserves or apple butter are equally delicious.
