Mississippi Magazines Grany Poo’s Hushpuppies

Your not from the South unless you have had some good hushpuppies!

1 ½ cups self-rising cornmeal
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
¼ cup of dehydrated chopped onions (from a jar)
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 egg, lightly beaten
¾ cup buttermilk
¾ cup beer

Mix all ingredients well. Batter should be thick. Let rest for 10 minutes and add equal parts of buttermilk and beer if batter is too thick, or cornmeal if too thin. It needs to be of a consistency that will hold together when dropped in hot oil, about 350 degrees. Drop heaping tablespoon of batter into deep hot oil and fry until golden brown, rolling over so both sides are browned. Good with Turnip greens, soup, vegetables, or fried fish.
Yield: 24 hushpuppies

Also in the Mississippi Magazine and won the bread award for best
