SWEET CORN PUDDING: ~ From: Foodista.Com ~ Recipe Courtesy of "Chef John Besh." ~ The cooking time of this savory pudding will vary greatly depending upon how hot the mixture is when it goes into the oven.

Fried okra is a staple in Texas and the south, and everyone has their own way to make it. The crust can be flour, cornmeal, or a combination of both; my grandmother used cornmeal, my mother uses mostly seasoned flour, my wife uses both at the same time. They are all good to me. In fact, I cant recall ever meeting a plate or bowl of fried okra that I didnt like. It is easy to make.
Chef Vivian Howard has used blueberries, blackberries, cherries, strawberries, plums, apricots and peaches in this recipe, as well as figs, apples, oranges and a combination of tangerines and cranberries for a festive-looking holiday cobbler.
