Crimes Against Food in Food Traditions & Culture Posted June 13, 2005 Just two quick observations; it's been a long time, and I reread the whole thread, and two bug out at me.If your cornbread's sweetened and cake-y, it's what we always called johnnycake.I know I'll get fried for this farmed catfish used for fried. GAWD, PUHLEEZE. It has no resemblance to a good, fresh, trotline cat, cut,frozen the right way, then thawed and fried the way cats were invented for. And the next time I hear someone carry on about catfish "being bottom feeders", learn about them. There are many different species of cats, and blues in particular will not usually touch dead baits. The thermocline in water also keeps many fish off bottom in hot weather, as there's no oxygen there.Speaking of bottomfeeders, whatcha think a lobster is? The fact that catfish will carry the taste of the waste in their water is more an indicator of a larger problem, the way a mine canary would.Ahem. Sorry. carry on.
