Mom Curl (my wonderful mother-in-law) gave me this great recipe back in 1949!
This is great along with fried fish. It can replace Hush Puppies!
Children love it..you might have to make a double batch.
Drained can corn can be used, but the fresh flavor is lacking.

NOTE: Before the Civil War was two years old. Southerners were feeling the pinch of shortage, and were devising many new recipes as well as reviving old ones,,
such as MOCK OYSTERS
