The Cookstr Weekly: Southern Fare for a Kentucky Derby Party

May 14, 2015

Even if you’re miles away from Kentucky’s “Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports” this weekend, there’s plenty to love about a reason to don a large hat and sip a mint julep or two. Pass around Southern specialties featuring plenty of ham and bourbon, and don’t forget to celebrate the winner with a slice of pie.

Warmest regards,

How to make a julep: crush the mint, bruise the mint; freeze the glass, freeze the silver chalice; make it with rye, make it with bourbon. These are the disputes. I offer my julep recipe – I make it with scotch.

Home-cured bacon is a revelation. You do not need a smokehouse, backyard shed, or special room. In fact, you can cure bacon in a plastic bag in your refrigerator.
