Yield: 4 Servings
|1 cup||White cornmeal|
|¾ cup||Boiling water|
|Bacon grease for frying|
Combine the cornmeal and salt in a small mixing bowl. Add the boiling water and beat until the mixture is smooth.
Heat the bacon grease in a large, heavy skillet to a depth of about one inch. Form the meal into small flat cakes, about 2½-inches in diameter, and drop into the hot grease. Fry on both sides until crisp and golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with butter.
NOTES : Corn pones are small fried corn cakes. Serve them with pork chops, ham or fried fish.
