Words are weird.
It's added protein! XD
Toss it in the nearest convenient waste receptacle.
Just a bit of extra protein and texture. I'm sure it would have been fine.
When I was a kid -- a little kid, like pre-five, maybe -- my grandmother would sometimes have my cousins and me pick all the weevils out of the flour or cornmeal or whatever they had gotten into. I don't know if it was just a money-saving thing or because my grandparents grew up during the depression or what, but food did NOT get wasted.I mean, sometimes, when we were shucking corn, and we'd corn worms in some of the ears, my grandfather would just pop those little suckers right in his mouth. He was always like, "It's good protein." He wasn't wrong, but I could never bring myself to do it.
A little protein for the cornbread. I always keep my flour and cornmeal in tins. I do love cornbread.
Please validate me.
