Community Guidelines for Facebook

Cornbread_in_cast_iron_panWelcome! Appalachian Foods and Recipes is a place to share recipes, photographs, and stories of foods and foodways associated with Appalachia.

  • This is is a place where you can post about foods that you (or someone you know) knows how to prepare, or about a food that you are trying to learn how to prepare.
  • We also love to hear stories about the first time you tried a new food or the place you learned to cook it.
  • This group is also a great place to post about something you’re trying to grow on your farm or in your vegetable garden.

Appalachia is a place that encompasses many people and cultures. Many of us live in the Appalachian mountains, and many others have ties that connect us to Appalachia across time and distance. All those with an interest in Appalachian foodways are welcome here.

A copy of these guidelines can also be found on Facebook.

If you post a recipe that you found somewhere else, please attribute its source and tell us about your experience preparing it. Due to spam, the first few posts by new members will be approved by the volunteer admins before automatic posting privileges are granted.

People who make some or all of their living in areas related to food and agriculture are welcome to participate in conversations. All posts should remain within the noncommercial format and spirit of the group.

I’ve posted a couple of times to the group and it seems my posts are taking longer and longer before they are approved. How long should I expect to wait before my posts are approved by admin? And how many posts will I have to make before my posts no longer have to be approved by an admin?

Hi Veronica. Usually it’s the first one or two posts someone makes. We try not to let anything sit in the approval list for more than a day, but sometimes it does get backlogged farther than that. For context, right now there are about 140 posts waiting for reviewed (almost all of them are spam). Now that I know for sure you’re not a spambot I’ll find you on the pending posts list and approve you for automatic posting. Thank you for joining us!

I would love to become a member of your group…My favorite hobby is southern style cooking…mostly from my mother. I would love to be able to comment or post a recipe if possible. I certainly understand any screening that you may do, as there are so many scammers and people that post offensive things….My name is Esther Boyd…
