I also love cracklin cornbread, my grandmother made her own cracklins and it was to die for.
Yeah, the homemade ones are best.
It used to be my job to stir them in the big iron pot so they wouldn't stick.
When they came out all golden brown, it was chow time!
We were given a heaping for a mess, then my mother filled about 2 large tin cans and set them in the pantry for getting us through the winter.
Ah, the memories ...
