The Grits & Gravy Crossword

I got my copy of Gravy, the Southern Foodways Association‘s quarterly publication, to which I contributed a Southern-food-themed crossword, in the mail today.

If you’d like to try your hand at it, here it is in PDF format, which you’ll need to print out. Ordinarily, I’d put it in Across Lite, and you’d be able to solve it on your computer, but, unusually, some of the clues are literary quotations and too lengthy for the software to process.

If you get stumped, here’s the solution.

Do email me and tell me what you thought! I plan to post more food-themed crosswords here soon.
