As I mentioned, our fish fry was a success. I have had a couple of folks ask for the recipe I used for the hush puppies. I actually used parts of 3 different recipes and I think they turned out great. Everyone else said they liked them as well. Here's the recipe.
Hush puppies Serves 20
2 cups self rising corn meal mix – yellow or white
2 cups self rising flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp sugar
Mix all the dry ingredients together.
1 large onion chopped finely
1 or 2 jalepeno peppers center and seeds removed, chopped finely(optional)
Add onion to dry mixture.
1 cup milk
¾ cup buttermilk, more if necessary to moisten mixture completely.
Stir until all combined. Drop into hot grease.(about 350 to 375 degrees)
May be cut in half for smaller batch.
After making ½ of the recipe, add the jalepeno’s and fry up the rest.
I used only one jalepeno, and you could see they were there, but you couldn't really taste them, so next time, I'm using two.
I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. Pray for those affected by the oil spill. Love one another.
