Self-Rising Cornmeal

Self-Rising Cornmeal is ground cornmeal premixed with baking powder and salt. You can get white and yellow versions.

You can buy this in some areas, especially the American South. Brands include Aunt Jemima, Martha White, White Lily, Tenda-Bake, Three Rivers, Yelton's, etc.

Some brands such as Martha White may include some wheat flour (as of 2010.)

The White Lily Flour brand is owned by Smuckers since 2008. Milling facilities for the product have been moved out of the south in Knoxville, Tennesee, to the American midwest. [1] Some American southerners say they can tell the difference now.

    And what's the day afterward, National Recovery from Vodka Day? For some people, Vodka Day comes more than once a year -- and they know by 9 in the morning whether it's going to be a Vodka Day or not. If you're a classic Martini person, today might be a good day to deviate and enjoy a cold, clear vodka Martini.
