Thursday's Southern Recipes
In honor of my Justice Seekers series, to which I've included some of my family's favorite recipes in the back of the upcoming release To Write a Wrong: A Justice Seekers Novel, releasing in September. But I'll be sharing some with those who are signed up for my newsletter, and I'll be sharing some here every Thursday during the month of March.
Mama’s Hot Water Corn Bread
white cornmeal mix—2 cups
1 finely chopped onion
finely chopped jalapeño slices—to taste
Put about 3/4 inch of oil in the skillet and heat till hot. Mix cornmeal, onion, & jalapeños. Add boiling water until mixture sticks together, about like mashed potatoes. Drop by the tablespoon into the grease, then mash with a spoon to flatten a bit. When brown, turn once.
