Southern Fried Cornbread

This seems just like what I remember my daddy doing. Haven't tried this yet, but didn't want to lose the recipe (from this site):
  • 1.5 cups self-rising cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
Mix cornmeal and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

Pour approximately 2 cups boiling water over dry ingredients.

Mix well. After the mixture cools slightly (and it will be hot!) shape mixture into balls about the size of golf balls, one at a time. (Very important) You must wet your hands with water before you make each ball.

Flatten the ball with your fingers (resulting about 1/2" thick ovals).

Fry in skillet (preferably cast iron) with about 1/2" of hot oil.
