We live about 3 miles south of the Mason Dixon line, but we simply cannot make edible hushpuppies. Oh, we've tried many times. As the snow started to fall tonight up here in the mountains, Misti made us a wonderful southern coleslaw and we breaded some fish to fry. We live in Italian country, so we had some wonderful hogie buns and Roma tomatoes for our southern supper fish sandwiches... and that's when I decided to make homemade hushpuppies (for like the 100th time). I should have known better...

This time was going to be different, though. Last fall we got some fresh ground corn meal at a County Fair in Wheeling, and with buttermilk and eggs, we've had the best cornbread since my Mom used to fry it in a skillet when I was a kid in southern West Virginia (well south of that Mason Dixon line). So I cut up my onions, mixed the eggs and buttermilk, and used that wonderful cornmeal... I thought... THIS will finally be the time that I make some good hushpuppies!

Outside of the two bites we each took, the experiment is headed to the landfill here in Morgantown. Simply put... we can't make hushpuppies. Sigh... I can't wait to live in Myrtle Beach where I can BUY good hushpuppies!

Here's how the Sea Captain's House makes them, and we love eating them there, (I have never tried to make a them myself.) ... shpuppies/

But I smiled at your tale of woe. I guess you just need to come to MB more often. :cool:
