    Cracklins used to be common fare on southern tables. Sometimes you have to go back to your roots and eat the food of your heritage. My folks and the neighboring farm families had hog killings in the winter and they made cracklins/cracklings. So in cold weather we ate cracklin bread. Buy the cracklins without skins, your teeth will thank you. Don't think cracklins are just for us down home folks anymore. Emeril Lagasse has a recipe on how to make Cracklins and a Cracklin Bread recipe!

    Old-School Cornbread recipe! Some otherwise reasonable Southerners will argue that cornbread is no good without sugar in it. I suspect many of these folks would repent if they had a chance to taste the kind made in a cast-iron skillet with stone ground cornmeal and real buttermilk.
