Corn bread has been a part of many cultures for centuries. In the United States, it’s usually thought of as a Southern food. However, Native Americans used corn long before it was introduced to Europeans, so had their own way of making it into breads and other recipes. South America’s countries each have their own recipes for corn bread. And, of course, as with most things, it is vastly different from country to country and region to region. In the Northern United State, people tend to like their corn bread sweetened; in the Southern United States it’s flavored with meat drippings and has a saltier taste and different texture.
This corn bread recipe is moist and has a bit of a kick – enjoy!
