 Cornbread Tips and Tricks

 

There are three keys to perfect cornbread:  great cornmeal, great batter, and great cooking techniques.  These tricks have been before Europeans had even set foot in the Americas.  Cornbread was actually invented by Native Americans who had been using ground corn in their cooking for a long time.  Afterwards, cornbread became a staple of southern cooking and was even used in the Civil War because it was portable and filled soldiers up well. 

 

Today, cornbread is made just as much as ever all throughout America.  It has been adapted by different regions so that today everyone feels like they know the secret to great cornbread.  In the south, it is common to cook cornbread on the stove in an iron skillet.  This makes for a very moist cornbread with flakey crust, however it requires a well seasoned skillet, which not everyone has.  Another common technique is to bake your cornbread.  This is more popular in the northern United States.  Cornrbead that has been baked is lighter and sweeter than traditonal southern cornbread; the taste is very similar to a corn muffin.  Some people even make steamed cornbread, a more pudding-like version of this popular dish.

 

Great cornmeal starts with great corn.  If you want to make the best cornbread, then you are going to have to buy the finest cornmeal around.  Thanks to our modern world, however, this is not difficult no matter where you live.  Check out your local organic store, if you are able to, and find a brand that fits within your price range.  Once your cornmeal is in hand, it's time to make your batter.  The recipe depends on your personal choice, but what you want to make sure you do no matter what is mix your ingredients well.  Cornbread with improperly mixed baking powder can turn out very badly.  Take your time in mixing the batter and you will get better results.  The cooking technique is up to you.  Fry it on the stove, bake it in your oven, or even steam it!  Cornbread has a tendency to get dry easily, so check on your bread often during the cooking process.  Most people enjoy their cornbread crispy on the outside, but moist on the inside.
