There's an interesting country story behind this recipe. I've worked at our local Farm Bureau office for 15 years. A friend on our women's committee developed it to give people new ideas for using farm commodities. I especially like preparing these muffins for my family on a winter night—along with a big pot of chili, they make for a very hearty meal! My husband and I have a farrow-to-finish hog operation here on the farm where he was born. We also grow several crops. One son farms with us, we have a grown daughter and our other son just graduated from high school.
