A Gem Night
Did you know there was such a thing as "gems?" Yea, verily, they exist. We learned about them from Lon Walter's book, "Old West Baking." They aren't a cornbread. They are Gems. You really need a "gem pan" to bake them correctly but an ordinarily muffin pan will work OK in a pinch. I recently challenged Susun to jump start her newly-revived baking carer but doing what I call "good gems." Well, she really knocked one out of the park tonight. They are very good gems. I wouldn't give them a totally Most Excellent Grade quite yet but they are a very good start. Thank You, Sweetie, for making gems come alive in our diet again.
