“Pot Likker,” “Potlikker,” “Pot Liquor,” or “Collard Liquor.” I don’t care what you call it. When you combine chicken stock, chardonnay, pepper vinegar, garlic, onions, smoked pork neckbones, smoked hog jowls, and a pinch of sugar & black pepper; the resulting broth would make an old boot delicious.
Saw this on Retronaut and had to put it up for my readers. Too quirky not to pass on. Seriously, check out that dressing! Weird. (Not nearly as weird as 7-Up in milk, though.)
Some of these are old standards, like 7-Up cake & 7-Up gelatin. Familiar territory for most southerners (seen those on many, many potluck dessert tables.)
As previously noted, all credit to Retronaut for
all images. Check them out sometine. Lots and lots of historical photos.
Final thought:try subbing 7-Up for beer in a typical beer batter. Works great for fried desserts. Some fish as well (gotta spice it up to cut the sweetness though.)
My sister-in-law and her boyfriend made these over the summer. I don’t know who’s idea this was, but i’m going to ask for the recipe. They tasted better than they looked. Which says a lot, because they’re beautiful. I really wish I could make my food look, and taste, half as good as theirs.
Christmas gift from a friend.
Skeptical as I was, I actually did taste the faintest hint of corn squeezins. It’s in there, but you have to look for it.
All in all, pretty tasty. It’s more of a conversation piece, but that’s not to say it won’t show back up on a biscuit again.

Sam’s house was a decent little barbecue joint in Carrollton, GA that some friends and I stopped by on the way back from a wedding.
No photos of the food, because we ate on the road. The pictures I took on the inside were purely out of boredom.
Things were moving kinda slow that day.
My only thought was how decidedly un “Memphis-like” the barbecue was. No dry rub to be found. Plus, the sauce was on the redder side of KC sauces & full of black pepper. (This seems to be a growing trend in Georgia. I blame Williamson Brothers.
Nonetheless, good stuff. I’d stop by again.
Decor was “Blues Hall” all the way. Hanging instruments and colorful walls. It definitely had “the look.”

They make burgers here stuffed with the “Cajun Trinity” and Conecuh Sausage.
Conecuh. Sausage. Stuffed. Burgers.
That’s all I’m writing. Seriously. If that’s not enough to convince you to drive to Mobile Alabama right now, you have my pity.
