My mother and grandmother made two types of cornbread. One was in a cast iron corn stick pan and the other in a cast iron skillet. The corn sticks seemed to have a finer texture than the one in the cast iron skillet. She would save the skin from pork and fry it into cracklins and add that to the cornbread. It was dry, but delicious and we seemed to have it every Saturday.
For the Superbowl we have made a tradition of chili and cornbread and the cornbread has little resemblance to that of my childhood. It is however easy, moist, and delicious. I thought someone might enjoy the recipe.
