Hush Puppies or Corn Fritters

This may bring a comment!  Our current guest who used to live in the south let me know that what we call corn fritters up here are known as hush puppies in the south.  Hush puppies are about an inch thick, deep fried and rolled in powdered sugar.  Corn fritters are shaped like pancakes and are abouit 1/2 inch thick.  We serve our fritters with honey.

Any comments?

  1. No, I don’t think hush puppies and corn fritters are the same! My mom is from West Virginia and down there, hush puppies are made from corn meal, I think, and they are savory, not sweet, sometimes baked, sometimes fried. Corn fritters are made from corn (fresh is best!), flour, corn meal, and spices, and can be deep fried or shaped into patties and fried in a pan. Yes, served with honey butter is delicious! My vote: Corn fritters hands down! 😉

  2. Hi every one, here every person is sharing these kinds of
    experience, so it’s pleasant to read this website, and I used to pay a quick visit this weblog everyday.

  3. Hush puppies are made with corn meal, eggs, salt, baking powder, buttermilk (or water), onions and salt. My mom always put corn kernels in too. The thick batter is dropped by the spoonful or rolled into balls and deep fried. They are served with seafood, often with cole slaw as the other side dish. I grew up in the South and hush puppies were a favorite side dish for everyone, especially kids. I’ve heard that fishermen and hunters would make them to toss at their hunting dogs during meal time to keep them quiet. I’ve never, ever heard of putting sugar on them.

  4. I have eaten a lot of hushpuppies (being from the South), and have NEVER had them rolled in powdered sugar, I use butter on them. They are always served with fish or BBQ dishes.

  5. lol. We dont roll hush puppies in powered sugar.
