Owen County Historical Society | Poke salad nourished a generation during tough times

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

In his new book, “The Best Cook in the World: Tales From My Momma’s Table,” author Rick Bragg wrote: “In a South that no longer seems to remember its heart, our food may be the best part left.”
This poignant statement was clearly demonstrated at the historical society picnic last week where a variety of Kentucky old-time recipes, along with a pinch of Owen County flavor, came to life.
There was no denying member Stella Gibson’s pickled beets took the center of attention, along with Peggy Trinkle’s bean salad.
