Organic Apple Cornbread and an organization worth knowing about

We always are on the look-out for new recipes, or old ones, that use our products. I’ve been adapting a few of my old ones but I really like it when our customers send us ones using our products.  I am starting to build a collection of them on our website.  I make them at least once before posting them.  I always will give attribution unless people ask me not to.  Please check out the latest one for Apple Cornbread.  I am a great cornbread lover but am very picky and I have to say I haven’t ever had one I like as much as this. It uses our organic open pollinated cornmeal. It can be used with both fine and coarse milled but using the coarse grind gives it an interesting texture. The recipe was shared by Nancy Wagner, who is with Compatible Technology International, an organization I would like you to know about. It is a non-profit organization based in St. Paul, MN, and has been working for the last 30 years to help provide clean food and water in developing countries. It was started by a group of missionaries, engineers and food scientists who have developed and distributed simple technologies throughout the world using skilled volunteers to address issues of post-harvest needs. They have an information packed website at www.compatibletechnology.org.  It is fascinating to read about and even more fascinating to see the simple machines they have developed to help people resolve nutrition and economic issues. Try this recipe and let me know what you think of it. Please send recipes my way to be posted on the website. Oh, and there is nothing better than a slice of this cornbread, served warm with a dollop of good-quality butter.  I used my new discovery, Rochdale Farms hand-rolled butter.  It’s all I can do not to eat it directly from the wrapper.
