THIS MONTH’S ISSUE:

NC History

In North Carolina, history is all around us — any fourth grader could tell you that. But North Carolinians excel at carrying history into our modern lives, be it through food we eat, the places we visit, music we listen to or family traditions. In this issue, we’re highlighting how some are making a hobby of history, as well as exploring one of our state’s more persistent mysteries. Also, don’t miss NC Outdoors, our new column from Wildlife in North Carolina magazine associate editor Mike Zlotnicki. — Scott Gates, editor

Turkey Hunt Counterpoint I normally love getting my Carolina Country in the mail, but this month, I opened up the magazine to “Hunt Gives Back to U.S. Veterans” (June 2017, page 10). My life’s purpose is to fight animal cruelty in any form, so when I see one of my favorite magazines glorifying hunting, needless to say, I am disappointed. There is NO cause good enough to exploit innocent victims. All animals have the same desire to live as you and I so it is also a gross misrepresentation to say: “The event provides a safe environment for all...” Jennifer Miller, Creston A member of Blue Ridge Energy

A Lot of Pudding I have a question about the recipe for Banana Pudding Cake published in the April 2017 issue (“Where to Go for Good Eats,” page 64). The recipe calls for two 4-oz boxes of instant vanilla pudding. The largest box I can find is 1.2 ounces. Four ounces would be a really big box. I was wondering if this shouldn’t be two ONE-ounce boxes of pudding. Thanks. Bonnie Richardson, Germanton, a member of EnergyUnited Editor’s Note: Thanks for the note, Bonnie. We checked with Asheboro restaurant Everything Under the Bun, the source of that popular banana pudding cake, and the recipe does call for a lot of pudding — about 8 servings worth. A four-serving box of Jell-O ranges from 3.4 to 3.9 ounces. Enjoy the cake!
