I'll admit; i love some real collard greens with either bacon or some smoked ham hock meat and pepper as a side. Grits I love. Mom and stepdad makes a hot pickled okra with slices of jalapenos and hot bana pepper slices. Everyone loves cornbread too I think wink What southern foods do you folks like. YES, its OK if you like real southern made sweet tea also wink

Pimento and Cheese sandwiches. Had them in Kentucky and fell in love with it. Sooooo good but sooooo bad for you. Quality Biscuits and Gravy Fried Chicken done properly.

Where do I start? I live down South and get southern cooking all the time. Fried catfish is a favorite, served with coleslaw, cheese grits, hush puppies, bread & butter pickles and sliced onions.
I remember helping my mom and dad pick wild growing creasy greens during the recession. It's hard to remember how my mom made them, but I think she just blanched them with hot bacon grease. Dang they were so good. I can't go too long without making a pot of butter beans with salt pork/streaked meat or sliced ham hock. I love grits with salt and butter the best, but I do like some redeye gravy on them too for a change. Got to have some fried livermush every now and then. I liked it fried extra crispy.
Fried Chicken Gizzards and Picked/Fried Green Tomatoes Collard and Turnip greens are good too thumbsup

Mmmmmmm good!
We make gumbo (well our version...well my wife's version) every fortnight or so...when I get time I go through the whole process "properly" Should do more cornbread with a celiac family.
I have seen people clean chitluns on TV shows, and I don't want any. Intestines is not my thing.
