Simple Greek “Peasant” Cornbread (Bobota)

Posted by Hallee on Aug 26, 2013 in Breads, Christian Faith, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

In Greek, the word bobota can mean anything from cornmeal to any bread or polenta-type dish made with cornmeal. In Greek history, during times of hardship, cornmeal recipes were very popular, and bobota is considered by many to be a “peasant” dish. This recipe gets a delightful shot of flavor from fresh orange juice and produces a dense, crumbly cornbread.

Southern Cheese Grits

Posted by Hallee on Jun 2, 2011 in American Quisine, Breakfast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

Grits, for those of you who haven’t spent a good portion of your life below the Mason-Dixon line, is a cornmeal made from hominy. Hominy is hulled corn kernels that have been stripped of their bran and germ. What the American Indians gave the Pilgrims was likely hominy. “Lye hominy” is made when the kernels of corn are soaked in a light lye solution. You can get white grits (made from white corn) or yellow grits (made from yellow corn). The difference between grits and polenta, other than regions of America, is that polenta is made from corn that retains the germ of the grain.

Popcorn? Really?

Posted by Hallee on Sep 14, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

As I was doing research for purchasing my grain mill, I read all sorts of “don’t do’s.” One of them was don’t try to grind anything that was too hard, including popcorn. But, when I got my grain mill (a NutriMill) the booklet that came with the machine said, “Popcorn will make the best cornmeal you’ve ever tasted.”

Old-Fashioned Cornbread

Posted by Hallee on Oct 22, 2009 in Breads, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

It took me a few years and several brands of cornmeal and many recipes to finally find one that everyone in my family loved. Now I have friends who ask for “Hallee’s cornbread” and friends who come for dinner whose children want to know if they’re having “Hallee’s Special Cornbread!”.
