The youngest member of the family, Liam, worked up this recipe for the National Cornbread Festival as part of the 4th Grade 4-H Cook-off, using his favorite Peach BBQ Sauce! He was lucky enough to win his school and his county competition, unfortunately, the big contest at the festival was cancelled, like so many things in 2020. We are super proud of him and even if he didn't get the chance to compete at the festival his recipe is a huge winner with us!
