I figured out that you meant the Alabama "Catfish King" because you said it was on Woodlawn
(There was an unrelated "Catfish King" in Texas), but I still don't know which recipe you
are looking for. There are recipes for the apple fritters and the salad dressing here:
There is more discussion about Catfish King here: 6-29-2012
If you wanted a recipe other than the apple fritters or salad dressing, Let me know and I'll
see what I can find.

Thank you.. First Job at 13 before that Selma Children's Home...
Someone needs to find the Selma's Candy Factory recipe for Butter Balls...
God Bless and have a Merry Christmas
I think you mean "butter balls" hard candy as made by The American Candy Company, which was in
Selma, Alabama. "Butter Balls" seem to have fallen out of favor in the USA, but they are still
popular in the United Kingdom, where that type candy is called "boiled sweets", their term for
what we call "hard candy." You can order them online.

I could not find a recipe for "butter balls", particularly not one from the American Candy Company.
I will post this for input from my readers.
You have a Merry Christmas as well!
