Favorite Recipes from North Carolina

I was recently working on a question that was posted some time in the past, asking about easy recipes to cook for a transplanted North Carolinian. I know we have quite a few members who live in North Carolina and I was wondering what you would recommend. I'm in the Pacific NW, so the food is about as different as possible. :)

Hi Jess, We have family and friends in NC and they are all about BBQ!! BBQ everything!! This is one of the favorite recipes that one friend shared. It is pretty easy and you can brush it on chicken, pork, or beef:

It is too hot for me...I am more of honey based BBQ gal, but the gang that likes spice loves it!

Thanks so much! Do you know what differentiates the NC BBQ from other types?

I know every region has their own style.

It is the vinegar. Pucker power and the heat.

Carolina Dogs
North Carolinians love a Carolina dog all the way topped with chili, slaw, onions, and mustard. Nothing more, and nothing less. If you can forget about Barbecue for a moment, this is one of N C favorite back-yard recipes.

Here's a resource for some NC recipes that may help you out www.ourstate.com/.../
Personally, I'd like to add deviled eggs and southern style potato salad to the list. Both are delicious and easy to prepare.

Thanks so much. Is there anything different about the deviled eggs or southern style potato salad?

Those are both classics across the country.

Corn pudding, made from fresh home grown corn, is one of my family's favorites. This is my recipe posted years ago.

Those recipes look great! I don't think I have ever had okra at all. I've had greens in bacon but probably not collard greens.

I'm as Northern as they come, being born 12 miles from the Canadian border in Bellingham, WA. :)

I love stewed okra but had never tried tomatoes and okra. I saw this can of Margaret Holmes Tomatoes and Okra in the grocery store and decided I would try it for lunch. It's 3 servings per can but it was so good, I ate the whole can full which was only 105 calories.

At our house, New Years day is not complete without eating fried Hog Jowl, Black-eye peas and turnip greens. www.tasteofsouthern.com/.../
