As important as it is to know where food comes from physically, it has been equally fascinating to investigate the origins of food historically. As a recipe disseminates into its various forms, a common denominator still stands. Indeed food is what we all have in common, and it plays an integral part of our lives and culture since time began. It has been gratifying to explore the ingredients we use today in relation to how they were used in the deep past, and thereby feel a connection and kinship with our ancestors.
So we have covered the history, the additions, and my personal experiences with cornbread. Today it is time to wrap up the series with a recipe that uses cornbread as an ingredient. This cornbread dressing recipe utilizes the sweetness of dried cranberries and is offset by the saltiness of sausage. The cornbread acts as a vessel for the all important sage, and it buoys the onion and celery into a casserole fitting any Thanksgiving table.
