Parke County Covered Bridge Festival

For the last 10 days, we have been at the Covered Bridge Festival in Mansfield, IN.  It was an opportunity to meet a lot of new people.  Some were clients, some were other vendors others were people who have never seen us before. 

We also had some outstanding food at the festival.  Beef brisket, pulled pork, steak tips with mashed potatoes and mushrooms, cinnamon rolls and much more.  A variety of foods from a variety of places.  Cecil and his crew have been at the festival for 33 consecutive years and only makes a limited number of cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls each day.  If you don't get there early, you will not get one. 

For us, we introduced a whole new area to our Salsa Grande.  A blend of habanero and jalapeno peppers with a nice mix of garlic, tomatoes and more.

We also sold an awful lot of pickled veggies.  We ran out of pickled asparagus, dilled beans, pickled carrots and sweet baby corn.  Next year, we'll pack more.
