Recipes from Alabama

Collection of alabama recipesjump to the recipes

Alabama is considered the center of the south and has the nickname "The Heart of Dixie". It's somewhat unique in that it not only is the center of the south but also borders the Gulf of Mexico, giving it a diverse culinary profile.

One of Alabama's most famous foods is its white barbecue sauce. This sauce is different from most other bbq sauces because it's made from mayonnaise rather than tomato sauce. It's spicy and tangy with cayenne pepper and vinegar added in.

The state nut of Alabama is the pecan and is one of their abundant crops. They also grow wheat, oats, peanuts and sweet potatoes.

The state fruit is the blackberry. The state tree fruit is the peach.

They even have a cocktail named after their state: the Alabama Slammer. It's made from Southern Comfort, sloe gin, amaretto and orange juice.
