  • About

The story goes that these little balls of fried cornbread got their name during the Civil War, when the people of the Deep South cooked them around the campfire and threw them at their dogs to shut them up if they heard Yankee soldiers approaching. Evander Preston prefers to eat his, Florida–style, with freshly caught catfish (see the following recipe).
