I’m a strict adherent to White Lily products and King Arthur…..White Lily was not sold here for years but I approached the district manager of Krogers and asked him pretty please, and now most grocery chains offer it here, because of it’s great popularity. Try calling the managers of one of your chains down there[:)]
Thanks, Lone Star. I went to their website and just placed an order for some cornmeal and a couple of other things.
It sounded familiar, so I did a search for White Lily on Roadfood. Sure enough, that’s the brand Mr. Sundancer uses. (The company is based in Knoxville.)
I started using the whole grain cornmeals a couple of years ago, because the cornbread tastes more "corny" to me. (It’s also probably better for us.) Looking forward to trying this one.
My boss was born and raised in Waverly, Tennesse, and in recent conversations about holiday cooking, she informed me that she simply could not make her cornbread dressing without White Lilly Cornmeal which is not available here.
She tried to describe the difference to me that made the brand superior to any other she had tried. We got online and she ordered some for all of us.
I made buttermilk cornbread with it last night, and even though I have been eating cornbread since before I could walk, I must say it was the absolute best I have ever had.
The packaging says that they make it by using the whole kernel of corn. Do any of you Tennessee folks know why or how it is different, and is it the favorite in your region?
I will definitely be ordering more and using it for my dressing this year.
