Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe and the beans came from Charleston, S.C. with the suggestion to fix crackin' cornbread, a pitcher of ice tea and sit somewhere you're not going to move for a couple of hours and get with it! Cornbread can be crumbled and put on top of soup or just cover a slice of cornbread with a good layer of butter and sorghum to complement the soup. Doesn't get any better than that. Libby
