This is a crusty cornbread with no sweetness. My late husband and I tried many recipes until we developed one we liked. Then I joined a whole foods coop and bought their cornmeal. Our recipe wouldn't work anymore, and even when we went back to what we thought was the old formula, it still wouldn't work. Took a long time, but we finally got our favorite cornbread back. We liked to make 1/2 of the recipe for a very crusty pone.
