Seeking recipe for Old Mill (Delmar, MD) hush puppies
- wenster Mar 5, 2009 04:22 PM
My fiance and I are getting married in Sonoma, CA this August and treating our guests to a good old North Carolina BBQ (both of us went to school in North Carolina), cupcakes, and s'mores... while we have a few good recipes for pulled pork and fixin's, I'm missing a great recipe to give the caterer for hush puppies!
I grew up adoring and dreaming about Old Mill Crabhouse's hush puppies in Delmar... does anyone happen to know or have a recipe that's close??
I don't know the Old Mill's recipe, but I grew up nearby, and have lived in NC and Va since then, so I am pretty familiar with hush puppies. How would you describe the hush puppies? Delicate or rustic. Smooth or with corn kernals. Sweet or not so. Savory or not.
I can suggest a couple of local mixes that you can probably order to arrive fairly fresh. I think fresh cornmeal is important with any cornbread product.
I suggest Byrd's Mill (also known as Patrick Henry corn meal products) from the Ashland Va roller mill.
Also, Miracle Maize (by Little Crow Foods out of Warsaw, Indiana, of all places.
If you want a sweeter product, try Autry's Mill out of NC.
