Re:Appalachia: Peanut Soup, Spoonbread, and Hotel Roanoke
Fred, Mamaw Smith who resides next door makes spoonbread quite often. Apparently it was a regular part of their diet when she was growing up in Tazewell, TN during the 20,s and 30,s. I still enjoy it when she makes it along with some sausage gravy or whatever.
The next time I am traveling up I-81 I will stop by and enjoy these treats.
