Essential ingredients in Southern Cooking

Monch | Apr 14, 2009 01:49 PM


I posted this in "South" and I don't think it was the appropriate forum.

Please help a Northern boy make the most of a great opportunity.

We'll be driving through Alabama this weekend, on our way home to Wisconsin.

Dear Southern Hounds: What quintessential Southern ingredients would you recommend I stock up on if I were to swing into a Winn-Dixie off the highway in Montgomery?

I cannot see myself investing in TOO many fresh ingredients, and would like to concentrate on staples, if possible.

Examples that I already know I'll be searching out:
White Lily flour
Steen syrup

In that vein, are there any other suggestions? Tell me what I should buy and I'll find the recipes from there!

Thanks so much, in advance.
