Potatoes and clams in broth are served with crispy bits of fatback sprinkled over the top. If good fatback is hard to find in your area you may substitute with bacon. This is the way they've made it down home for more than 100 years. It ain't fancy but oh my is it fine!
My backwoods Mississippi grandmother loves to can her own sweet pickles! Here's how she does it! My grandmother stresses that you shouldn't leave them unrefrigerated for more than four or five hours or they may not keep. She says it's easy and very good! My grandmother rotates the can by turning it upside down every other day then back over. Within about a week the pickles will be sweet and delicious!
