Yesterday we cooked outside over a fire. I made bean with bacon soup, peach cobbler and Johnny Cakes. I did not take any pictures, but you really don't need them for this. You can look on Wiki for an article explaining the origins of Johnny Cakes here. And here is how I made them:
1/2 cup thick whole wheat sourdough starter
3/4 cup goat milk
Wisk all of that together with a fork, and then add:
1 cup whole corn meal
1 teaspoon Real Salt
2 Tablespoons Sucanat
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 Tablespoons raw honey
2 Tablespoon melted kettle lard
Mix together the corn meal, salt, soda and sucanat. Add that to the milk mixture and then stir in the honey and lard. Let the batter set while you heat up your griddle.
Cook just as you would for pancakes, on a griddle greased well with lard.
Serve with plenty of butter and molasses. Oh, it was SO good!
Needless to say, you can substitute ingredients, but this was an excellent combination, and I would not do it without the sourdough. It's just not the same. If you need a sourdough starter, you can get one for free here: http://carlsfriends.net/
