Anadama bread is a cornmeal and molasses based bread. There are several stories of its origin, the most popular being that a Maine farmer had a lazy wife named Anna who continually served him cornmeal mush and molasses. One day, the disgusted farmer grabbed the bowl of mush, added some flour and yeast and created a bread, all the while muttering under this breath, "Anna, damn her." Anadama bread is available in specialty food stores and small bakeries throughout Maine.
