What is a born and raised Pennsylvania girl doing making Cracklin’ Cornbread? This is a traditionally “suthun” dish after all. (By the way, Southerners think that Pennsylvanians are Yankees, but to Pennsylvanians, Yankees are people from New England).

You Get Cracklings When You Render Lard
The folks in the Foxfire Books mentioned that they saved the cracklings for bread. I didn’t really know exactly what bread with cracklings was and had to do a little research. And, of course, I discovered that the bread to which they are referring is cornbread.
All you Southerners, stop laughing. So, here is how I managed my cornbread with cracklings. If it’s not the “real” way, it’s ok. I’m a Northerner. Tried and true.
So, are cracklings part of your traditions? How have you used them?
