A fish fry on the creek bank with cornmeal battered, just-caught fish and homemade hush puppies. It doesn't get much more summer than this. Hush puppies don’t need much to be great. Just cornmeal, a little onion, a touch of butter and some hot oil.
It doesn't get any better than huckleberries, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (my mama's secret ingredient), all wrapped in a golden crust. Its a labor of love but well worth it.
Elegant in their simplicity with the goodness of sweet corn and corn's little used treasure, corn milk. These are great all by themselves or with a side of brown beans or wilted greens.
