Points East: Taste of Blair Branch

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

What I really wish I could have been able to do for Truman is take him to The Wind Gap Diner and insist that he order scrapple.

Truman would have said, “I bet hog snouts taste better than this stuff.”

And I’d have replied, “Nope.  They’re the main ingredient in what you’re eating.” 

Truman would have replied, “ Oh well, I’ve heard that in some places they eat snails.”

And I’d have replied, “Stir that stuff up a little and see if you can’t find one.”
