    I love that you have a different cornbread for different occasions. I read your guest post on baking tips and now know why you would mix butter and shortening. I’ve done that in the past without knowing why other than not to use so much shortening.

    I am thinking of doing a 100-mile diet Thanksgiving dinner, (sourcing all food stuffs from growers within a 100 mile radius of our home) and I was thinking cornbread would be where it is at instead of dinner rolls. (I am hoping cornmeal sourced locally is available.) Are there other GF flours you might substitute in place of your ideal garfava-sorghum flour blend? I know the product wouldn’t be as good, but within a 100 miles, I don’t know anyone who grows sorghum. (Or cranberries for that matter!)

    Also, another totally different question, do you know why grocery stores have sorghum in cycles? It is in stock and then out of stock for months at a time. Is this flour more scarce? I am about ready to just order a couple flats at a time so I can keep it in my pantry at all times. It is one of my favorite flours.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @abbie, I’d start with the flours you can use for your 100-mile Thanksgiving dinner and go from there. I do have a cornmeal only cornbread on my blog – Skillet Cornbread and it’s fabulous. It’s just not as moist or thick as this one.

    I live in a big city so I haven’t had trouble with sorghum. I buy Bob’s Red Mill and though sometimes one store is out, it’s always at another store. Amazon.com also has it on Subscribe & Save. Sounds like you’re buying in huge quantities – what brand are you using?

    [Reply]

    abbie Reply:

    @Amy, Goodness, you are always a wealth of valuable information Amy. You are so right about sourcing flours first. (Maybe along side a turkey, though a Ham in these parts might be even easier!) I am going to check out your skillet cornbread…there is just something about baking in a skillet that is so yummy appealing.
    I just put in a special order for sorghum flour with my local WholeFoods. I too use Bobs Red Mill brand. I live in a densely populated suburb of Washington D.C. and we have a ton of stores w/in 40 minute drive, but they are small. The grocery manager said it was all about shelf space, and they can’t stock everything all the time. But my double flat flour order will last a few months. (I’ll just store it in my freezer.) At WholeFoods, I get 10% off and don’t have to pay for shipping for a quantity order. I haven’t tried the Amazon.com subscribe and save, though I have heard it can be economical for some. Thanks Amy again for the Plum Bake shout-out today! I’ll be looking for that book update. :) *wink* *wink*
    Oh, and totally off topic, can I put in a recipe request for Halloween? The ultimate caramel popcorn ball? I don’t know if you like caramel, but I am a total fan and so are my kiddos. I had these a kid and just thinking of them it is bringing back those autumn memories!

    Pinto beans and corn bread is one of my very favorite meals! Mmmmm. I don’t always digest eggs well, and I like my cornbread to have a little sweetness, so last time I made my skillet cornbread (all cornmeal like yours) I used mashed banana in place of the eggs. It was very yummy, satisfied the need for an egg replacement and provided sweetness without any added sugar!

    Tropical Traditions has a very interesting and informative website. They don’t sell palm sugar because it is not a sustainable practice. The flower that we get the sugar from, would normally become a coconut and keep the species going.

    Here’s a great quote from the TT website, that I have to keep in mind anytime I “can’t afford” good food:

    “Everyone has the freedom of choice. If one does not like the high price of properly grown food, they have the choice to move out into the country and to raise it themselves. When Abraham Lincoln was president of the United States, 50% of the population were farmers, and almost everyone was close to fresh farm sources. Today, less than 1% of the population raises our food. Those unwilling to make the sacrifice to raise their own healthy food should be prepared to pay a premium price to those who do.”

    Check them out, they offer lots of information and recipes and stuff. I got a lot out of it.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Cindy Drozda, Interesting…according to and this article palm sugar is available from the same flower for 20 years. They also state that palm sugar is rich in amino acids and other nutrients. I like the stuff.

    Trying again with my comment … I just love cornbread. There are so many great variations. The recipes with butter and buttermilk have always been my favorites. Yours looks great, Amy, and thanks so much to linking to my recipe! I’m definitely ready to try some palm shortening, and wow, on it being a gallon–now that’s a supply!

    Well, in hopes that you really did mean continental U.S. like you wrote, and not contiguous states, here’s my entry.

    In in AK, and that’s still part of the continent.

    Cheers!

    I made this cornbread a couple of weeks ago. Family loved it. Didn’t have any palm shortening, so I used coconut oil instead and it worked out well enough. But, I have come across so many recipes that call for the shortening, so I would be thrilled to win some from my FAVORITE online company – Tropical Traditions!!!

    And, I am already signed up for their newsletter.

    This bread does look really good indeed…I’m hesitant about the palm sugar, though; isn’t is essentially the same, health-wise, as table sugar? Seems like raw honey could be used as a substitute here, no?
    thanks,

    @Michael@noflournosugardiet, My body doesn’t react to coconut palm sugar the way it does to table sugar and it’s not overly sweet either. White sugar is high glycemic, coconut palm sugar is around a 35. It’s got nutrients in it, too. Here’s a little more info:http://simplysugarandglutenfree.com/coconut-palm-sugar/

    It might not work for your body, but it does for mine.

    You can certainly try honey in this recipe. I don’t use it too often in my cooking because I can only do honey in very small amounts.

    Very good arguments for palm sugar, Amy and excellent references, thank you.
    Is there a particular palm sugar brand or brands that you recommend/most often use so I can take a closer look at them?
    Thanks again-

    This is wonderful! I grew up on cornbread and this one is as good as Granny’s! I even baked it in her old cast iron skillet ~yummy~. Saw an idea on Pinterest to make mini corn dogs. This recipe is enough for 18 mini corndogs and they also turned out great! Thanks Amy!
