Friend (and early Savoring Kentucky subscriber) Matthew Rosen took a trip to THE City in late fall 2008, where he proceeded to behave in some very Savoring Kentucky-like ways: He shopped for local food in a farmers market; he bought 100 percent pure sweet sorghum syrup; and he made cookies with the sorghum. He can speak for himself:
"On a recent trip to New York (city) I was taken to the farmer's market. Yep, even in the big city (the biggest city really) people yearn for real, local food. The market happens twice a week (Wed and Saturday) year round in Union Square (where Broadway cuts across 14th through 16th streets.) It's another beautifully maintained NYC park. I couldn't remember why, but since I wasn't going to take any vegetables, meats or cheeses back on the bus to Boston - - but wanted to take back something (and to spend a little money with the farmers) I picked up a bottle of sorghum syrup. Later I realized it was something I had read on Savoring Kentucky. Since you already know I am all about photo-documenting my food projects, look for pictures taken at the market as well as the end result of my sorghum - - sorghum snaps (coming your way via email.) They are good!"
And here's a gallery of Matthew's pictures, starting at the Union Square Market and ending up with Sorghum Snaps.
