Popcorn cornbread

Have you ever had popcorn cornbread? We made our first batch the other day and really enjoyed it. We had a bunch of old popcorn from years ago that wasn't popping good anymore. So we simply ground the corn kernels (not popped) though our mill. We sifted out the coarser pieces for popcorn grits and made cornbread with the meal.

Our soap box

One winter project is to make soap.  The batch here is Cream and Honey Soap.  We use tallow we render, often from our own beef cattle, cream and milk from our Jersey cows and honey from our bees.  Now that's some homegrown cleaning power!
