Miss Kitty's Organic Skillet Cornbread

“We love to have cornbread with our southern dishes and beans soups. Since we're now an organic family, I came up with these substitutions for an organic cornbread prepared the old-fashioned way, in an iron skillet. NOTE: I get most of the dry ingredients listed from Bob's Red Mill, as they are readily available where I shop.”
