Serious Eats: Talk
Vittles! Varmints! Do you have a backwoods recipe?
Ozark Kitchen measurements according to Jed "A smidgen is just a teensy little bit like that. Three smidgens makes one pinch. Four pinches equals one little bit. Four little bits equals one middlin amount. Three middlin amounts equals one right smart. and it takes five right smarts to make one whole heap"
Irene Ryan,(Granny, Beverly Hillbilly) and Cathy Pinckney, in fact published "Granny Hillbilly Cookbook" I tried to find a list of her recipes but could not. There is another book by Jim Clark (Beverly Hillbilly Cookbook), but I wanted to learn more about the one "Granny" had her hand in.
Do you know how to cook hillbilly? Does anybody actually have the Granny Hillbilly Cookbook? I loved that show as a kid and am still amused by Granny antics to this day.
