Addie is correct. The corn bread here in SC that i have had was horrible. It was very dry, and has zero taste.

I am assuming this is one reason they love their corn bread down here. They never eat corn bread like bread. Its always used in combination with something else.
Like the gross idea of opening a pint of buttermilk, drinking half of it, then adding crumbled corn bread to make a paste. Yuk on so many levels.
Or its used in stuffing (which I find to be good) or served with soup or beans.
There is no juice in any southern soup once it reaches the table. It is immediately covered with crumbled corn bread and mixed up to make another paste that they just absolutely adore.
I like corn bread with these things. Just not in these things.
I want to make the Mexican corn bread that was provided. But I know for a fact my wife does not like sweet corn bread.
I have everything but the buttermilk. I wonder if regular whole milk will be okay?
We are having the Souths signature dish today. Pinto beans made with ham bone and ham pieces at at the end.
This dish needs corn bread.
And i plan to make something palatable.
