Servings: 8

Preparation duration: -1 minutes

Cooking duration: -1 minutes

 

Ingredients:

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Vegetable, peanut or canola oil for frying

1/4 cup finely minced fresh or dehydrated onion

1 tablespoon lemon juice (omit if using buttermilk)

1 cup milk (or buttermilk)

1/2 teaspoon finely minced parsley

1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup flour (can be whole wheat flour too of course)

2 cups yellow cornmeal

Equipment:

frying pan

mixing bowl

whisk

paper towels

oven

Cooking instruction summary:

  1. In a cast iron skillet or a large heavy fry pan over medium-high heat, heat about 3 inches of oil to 350-360 F or until a small amount of batter dropped into the hot oil sizzles and floats
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients, parsley and onions.
  3. Add the lemon juice to the milk and set aside for 5 minutes (if using buttermilk omit the lemon juice). Add the egg and add to the milk, whisk to combine.
  4. Add 1 cup of the milk/egg mixture to the dry ingredients and combine to make a stiff batter (if the batter is too dry, add the rest of the milk; if the batter is too thin, add cornmeal). The batter should be thoroughly moistened, but should still hold a rounded shape on a spoon.
  5. Using a teaspoon, scoop up a heaping spoonful of batter and using another spoon (or fingertip) form into a rough ball and slide into the hot oil. Rinsing the spoon in cold water after every 3 balls makes forming them easier. Fry for approximately 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning to brown all sides.
  6. Remove from oil and place hushpuppies on paper towels; continue cooking the remaining batter. Keep warm in the oven until all the hushpuppies have been fried and dinner is ready to serve. Serve hot.

Food Joke

On the last day of kindergarten, the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist's son gave her a box. She hook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it flowers?" "That's right!" said the boy. Then the candy store owner's son gave her his package. She shook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it a box of candy?" "That's right!" said the boy. Next the liquor store owner's son handed her his box. She shook it, held it up, and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "I bet I know what it is. Is it wine?" "No," said the boy. She touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it Champagne?" "No," said the boy. "I give up. What is it?" The boy grinned. "A puppy!"
