Besides for several of the things mentioned already there's hush puppies, cobbler (peach, blackberry, cherry or apple) and fresh ripe clingstone peaches.

Have always wondered what Grits or Chitlins are.

I remember them often being mentioned on Beverly Hillbillies.
To be eaten on the fancy eating table.

Grits are ground hominy which is lye treated corn. Chitlins are intestines. I eat grits. I don't eat chitlins.

1. The chicken biscut

There is no better way to start your day than a nicely fried piece of chicken slapped between a glorious buttermilk biscuit! I have found that there are establishments around that are dedicated to making only breakfast biscuits and they are awesome!

2. Pimento cheese spread

This is not the same as the crap you usually see jammed into crevice of a celery stalk. This has copious amounts of shredded cheddar cheese mixed with mayo and pimentos. It's great either melted or not and makes a killer grilled cheese sammich

3. Boiled peanuts

I never understood the notoriety that surrounded these until I actually tried some. The texture of the peanut becomes soft, almost gummy and takes on the flavor of what ever you put into the boil (usually cajun spices). I am actually making some boiled peanuts right now using a blend of Thai spices.

I know there are plenty of southerners here, what's your fave?

The town I lived in when I was in SC has a big peanut festival every August. They were all about the boiled peanuts. I never did acquire a taste for them. But I sure learned to love grits!

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Luckily that is something I can get here in the North. Thumbsup

Got a nice cold glass of Jim I'm working on now. Thank you, Kentucky.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

We forgive Kentucky for giving us Jack Daniels because they also gave us Jim Beam. .... wait is Jack Daniel's Tennessee? Kentucky is absolved of bourbon blasphemy.

Have you tried Devil's Cut?

Jack Daniels is from Tennessee and is whiskey. And belongs in a coke.


Jim Beam is a bourbon (so definitely from Kentucky). And belongs in a coke.

Angels Envy or Blantons - pour me two fingers, thanks.

Damn you for correcting me before I could correct myself. Damn you all to hell!
