Crackling BreadAsk a Southerner whose memory goes back far enough about crackling bread crumbled up in buttermilk – and watch his eyes light up!  This is a tried and true recipe…

2          Cups    Cornmeal

1          Tsp      Baking Powder

½         Tsp      Salt

2/3       Cup     Cracklings

Sift into a bowl cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.  Pour into this enough boiling water to make a stiff batter.  Add cracklings.  Mold into oval shapes (pones) and bake in a hot (425 degree) oven, until light brown.  Serve with tall glasses of very cold buttermilk, and be sure the hot crackling bread is to be broken into the milk and eaten with teaspoons.
