Born in Memphis and raised in Mississippi, I often miss the Southern traditions and dishes like fried chicken, hush puppies, Mississippi mud pie, chicken and dumplings, and sweet tea—and now, pineapple pie! No matter where you’re from, one Southern thing tends to resonate with most everyone, and that’s the musical talent (and general coolness) of Mr. Johnny Cash.
When my daughter was just four, she knew all of the words to “Folsom Prison Blues,” which my husband and I treated as a prestigious parenting win. Maybe it wasn’t our best parenting moment, but I love exposing her to Southern traditions, like those that Reese Witherspoon touts . So, when given the opportunity to try Mama Cash’s pineapple pie recipe, I was in. Ready to see what happened?
