Grandmother Eddy's Arkansas Cornbread

2 eggs
2 c. buttermilk
1 t. baking soda
2 c. cornmeal
1 t. salt

Heat oven to 450.

Generously oil round skillet. Heat skillet in oven while preparing batter.

Beat eggs then beat in rest of ingredients until smooth. Pour batter into hot skillet until almost full.

Bake 20-25 minutes or just until set.

Serve piping hot with butter.

Grandma Justice's Turkey Stock

turkey neck, gizzard, heart and feet
2 stalks celery with leaves
1 med. onion, quartered
1 carrot, sliced in several pieces
1 t. salt
1 bay leaf
a few peppercorns
5 c. cold water

Add all ingredients to large stock pot. Simmer for 1-4 hours. Strain.

Grandma Justice's Turkey Stuffing

3/4-1 1/4 c. turkey stock
3 c. whole wheat bread
2 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 c. melted butter
1/2 t. each: thyme, sage, sweet marjoram
1 t. salt
1 unpeeled apple, diced
1/4 c. finely minced onion
1/4 c. minced celery with leaves

Crumble corn bread and wheat bread into pieces (leaving crusts on bread). Let dry slightly in oven (turn on heat, but don't toast bread).

Beat eggs until foamy and stir in melted butter and seasonings.

Combine breads, apple, onion, and celery.

Add eggs and seasonings and stir well.

Add stock slowly and test carefully until stuffing is right consistency.

(TEST= pick up dressing and press it between your hands gently. Put it on a plate. If it holds together but barely separates as you lift with a fork, there is enough moisture. This is the texture it will have when baked.)

Cover with foil and bake at 350. Be careful not to over bake.
