That's how it's done in my house. We never have leftovers when I make a pot of them up. I personally don't eat the skin. I just like the flavor.
Sometimes I like to add a little maple syrup to my bowl.
It's not the same without cornbread.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

I'd throw it away. Even my cats wouldn't eat it.

If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

Same here, Katie and Munky - I use it to flavor white bean soup and then fish the chunks of fat out. It adds so much flavor...and I'm with you on the cornbread! Sometimes I crumble some up and add it to my bowl of soup.

We tossed the skin and used the bone to flavor the bean soup and then added the pieces of meat at the end.
It was SOP growing up with leftover bone in ham.
