The Southern Foodways Alliance, based in Oxford, Miss., is working on a cookbook and is in search of a few good Southern recipes.
They are still on the hunt for recipes in a few discrete categories. If you've got one, send it to them at [email protected]. And, they don't just want the recipe - they want to know how long you've used it, how long the person before you used it, and so on. They can't promise to include it in the final volume, but, if they do, they'll attribute it properly!
They still need recipes for frog legs, turtle/cooter, field peas, fried apples, poke, ambrosia, curried fruit, pawpaws, mayhaw jelly, simple dirty rice, homemade root beer, cafe brulot, lemonade, Creole Cream Cheese, divinity, mints, strawberry shortcake, and cheese straws.
Please don't send recipes for other dishes. If it's not on this list, they've got it covered!
