Lemon Southern Style Posole- Is great in the fall when the weather has finally got cooler.
You all know that phrase, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” This proverbial message was the crust and namesake of Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade. Many have shared their opinions on the artistic nature of the video, the exposed cheating in the lyrics, the credibility of Beyonce as a figure of empowerment, all the way down to conversations about the videos “plantation chic” fashion. I decided to chart a different course and share my opinions on her grandma’s actual lemonade recipe in this week’s newsletter. My feelings are pretty strong on this matter so make sure you watch the video.
In addition, I explored what other recipes you could and should be making when life hands you lemons. Check out all 6 of my lemon inspired recipes below.
What is the difference between corn and hominy?
The difference between these two is that Hominy is made from field corn, which is the type of corn used to make things like cornmeal and grits. Hominy can be yellow or white. Sweet corn is yellow and can be eaten on the cob.
Can canned mustard greens be used?
Yes, canned greens can be used. However, they tend to have high levels of sodium. Make sure to drain before adding to your posole soup.
What other types of meat can be used?
You can, for sure, use other types of meat for this tasty soup. Try using chicken or pork. Keep in mind that you’ll need to pre cook the meat whichever way you prefer before adding to this recipe.
