Cornbread is central to American culinary history. The early settlers often depended on it. While today cornbread is largely a regional bread eaten mostly in the South, this has not always been so. For all of us outside the “cornbread belt,” this food is worth a revisit. ‘Floriani Red Flint’ produces an orange-yellow bread.

Use a finely ground meal for this recipe, or sift a coarser flour to produce a finer one. If you make your own butter, use the buttermilk. If you aren’t ready to bake when you make butter, you can always freeze the buttermilk for later use.
