North and South Carolina

In our study of the Southeastern states we learned about North and South Carolina. First up is North Carolina. The capital of North Carolina is Raleigh. Did you know that North Carolina did not want to become a state unless changes were made in the United States Constitution? Congress agreed to make changes in the amendments which are known as the "Bill of Rights". Next is South Carolina. The capital of South Carolina is Columbia. Did you know that South Carolina is one of the Confederate States (Southern States) that fought against the Union States (Northern States) in the Civil War? Here's some tasty recipes to try...

Chopped Barbecued Pork

1-1/2 lb Pork shoulder roast
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Celery seed
Dash of Cinnamon, ground
3/16 c Cider Vinegar
1/4 c Catsup
1/4 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Nutmeg, ground
1/4 tsp Sugar
1/2 c Water
Cider Vinegar, to taste
Tabasco Sauce, to taste


Brown roast in a small amount of fat and place in a Dutch oven. Mix the next 9 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over roast and cover.

Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven, 40 minutes to the pound, until done, basting occasionally with drippings. Transfer roast to a chopping board. Remove meat from the bone and chop into fairly fine pieces. Season to taste with additional vinegar and hot sauce.

Serve hot with coleslaw and corn bread.

Sunflower Seed Cookies

1-1/2 c. margarine, softened
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. white sugar
1 tblsp. baking soda
1 tblsp. baking powder
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. sunflower seeds


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Cream sugar and butter or margarine. Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Then add coconut and sunflower seeds. Mix well.

3. Shape into one inch balls and bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 15 minutes or until delicately browned.

The BBQ Pork is pretty good but we haven't tried the cookies yet. If you are from North or South Carolina please share a recipe with us to try. Come on back to see what's next in our studies of the Southeastern states. Thank you for stopping by to learn along with us.
