Kids' Kitchen: Old-Fashioned Cornbread

We just finished reading Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. It was such a great book about a boy growing up in the Ozark Mountains in the 1930s. His mother cooked some of the meals I grew up on in rural Tennessee.

How did your cornbread taste? Did you like the taste? Was it different from cornbread you have had before?
