North Carolina Hush Puppies

Ingredients & Directions

1 c Corn meal 1 ts Sugar
1/4 ts Soda 1/2 c Buttermilk; *note
1 tb Flour 1/4 c Water
1/4 ts Salt 1 Egg; beaten

Mix all dry ingredients together. Then add egg, buttermilk, and
water. Drop by spoonful into hot deep fat. Fry to a golden brown. (If
a deep pot is used, the hushpuppy will float to the top when done).
*NOTE: If you don’t want to buy buttermilk, substitute 1/2 c. milk
with 1 T. lemon juice added. Stir and let it sit for 5 minutes. It
works just as well. Please note: You can make variations of this
recipe in several ways: i.e., 1/4 c. finely chopped onion, less
sugar, etc. But, at the coast of NC the above type recipe is usually
served. Judy Garnett, pjxg05a, Raleigh,NC
