And it makes great cornbread.
The National Cornbread Festival is in South Pittsburg, Tennessee (the home of Lodge cast iron) on April 26 and 27 this year. They have a cook-off, a cornbread eating contest, and lots of other things. The only thing is, they have a recipe section and some of the recipes call for putting sugar in the cornbread - that is a big no-no here in the South! When I bought Kathryn Tucker Windham's cookbook, "Treasured Alabama Recipes" that's even how she signed all her books!
