If it is one thing we know about here in the south, it’s good home cooking. After all, we’re kind of known for our sweet tea, cornbread, and fried chicken. And that’s just to name a few! As the weather starts to turn, we’re all going to be whipping up our favorites here in the kitchen. Here are a few to try if you’re new to the area or some to revisit if it has been a while.
Biscuits and Gravy
Who doesn’t remember their mama or grandma making biscuits and gravy in the kitchen? While every good southern chef has their own rendition, here’s a tip for the next time you’re whipping up a batch on a cold morning: add sage. Whether it’s sage sausage or a little bit from the spice rack, you won’t be disappointed.
Collard Greens with Bacon
A popular staple for Sunday dinners across the south, this leafy green vegetable pairs well with the saltiness of crumbled bacon. Some cooks even toss in a ham bone, garlic, or onions for added flavor. And others even throw in a cup or two of chicken stock for even more flavor. No matter how you make it, collard greens are a comfort-food staple you can’t miss out on.
Is it pee-can or puh-can where you live? Either way, this is one of those desserts that every southern chef knows how to make well. While there are dozens of recipes out there, the general consensus is that the one on the back of the Karo Syrup bottle is usually the best. Well, with a dash of good old bourbon tossed in for good measure. (Shhh! Don’t tell grandma!)
