Before we got to Oxford for the festival, we decided to go visit the Amish community close to Pontotoc again, especially since we were going right by there.
Just like last time, there were signs alongside their driveways so that people would know what they had for sale:
We stopped at the house with the signs above and got:
Dill pickles, sorghum molasses, chow chow, pickled beets, muscadine jelly, and pea hull jelly. Yes! Pea hull jelly! Don’t see that every day…
Inside another workshop were all kinds of baskets and this time I purchased something like an old cotton basket – and the man said that’s what most people call it. I was thinking it might be nice to hold toys in, for Shug’s room.
We got homemade butter (actually I bought homemade butter at two different houses because I love the idea that someone out there is still milking a cow and churning butter).
