Behind every good cornbread is a quality, stone-ground cornmeal (such as this one
), which has a coarse, sandy texture that ensures the bread will have just the right crumb but won't be falling apart. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the jar and then tie a beautiful wooden spoon (like Le Creuset's Silicone Spatula Spoon
, which comes in an array of gorgeous colors) and this recipe
to it with gingham ribbon.
