  While working on the upcoming fall catalog, I noticed how many times we used the word “Delicious”.  I needed a few synonyms to replace it, and yet still describe Broadbent foods as- well, delicious. So, I pulled out my copy of “The New American Roget’s College Thesaurus”, (the actual book), which I bought in the 1970’s.  I can’t tell you the date it was published, because the cover and front couple of pages are missing. Here’s what I found: “Delicious-  Adj.-  delectable, luscious, toothsome, palatable, savory.  See TASTE.”   I was familiar with all...

    Many of you have been disappointed that we no longer have beaten biscuits available, especially here around Derby time. For as long as we can remember, Jackson Biscuit has supplied Broadbent’s with their beaten biscuits.  Unfortunately, last year they were forced to close their doors. The owners’ declining health no longer allowed them to make their delicious products. In a way, it’s a bit like curing country hams; it’s a dying culinary art form. We sure do miss those sweet folks, and their famous beaten biscuits. If you aren’t...

Deviled Eggs (or Dressed Eggs as my Mother-In-Law called them) are, without question, a part of most Easter Dinners.  I found this simple recipe from “Southern Living” that sounds much like the recipe I follow! The difference? I never measure anything! Just add and taste until I decide they taste how they’re supposed to. Here’s a recipe link with measurements:  https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/basic-deviled-eggs. Here’s a helpful tip you’ll find in that recipe that I didn’t know. “After cooking, drain immediately and fill the saucepan with cold water and ice. Tap each egg...

It’s all about the aging process here at Broadbent’s.  We age our Country Ham 6 to 18 months.  It’s been twenty years since Ronny and I purchased Broadbent’s.  The sale was final on April 1, 1999.  So while our hams have been aging, we’ve aged as well.  That’s right; it’s been 20 years since we began our lives as Broadbent’s Mom & Pop Business owners.  With two children of our own at the time, we certainly fit the bill! At the time of purchase, we knew the old-fashioned Country...

  Here, in beautiful western Kentucky, we are now firmly in the middle of what we are hoping is Winter's last hoorah (Y'all say a prayer for us). The snow and ice that we saw this weekend aren't uncommon for our area this time of year, so we have learned to prepare. Just like a squirrel with his acorns, we stash away goodies to tide us over until the thaw. Whether your mornings are crisp, or dreary, there is no better way to start a cold day than with...

These tips are a few of our own, and several of well-known experts. We aimed to cover cooking those items that everyone cooks or wishes they could cook better.  Cooking is a skill that isn’t always passed down, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn those great things our Grandma’s knew. #1 Remember, Y’all, it’s all about the prep. Take away the stress by doing the prep the night or day before. You’ll look like a star. “Paula Dean” Even for the everyday cook, prep can take the most time....

At Broadbent B & B Foods, we offer our country style hams cooked or uncooked. Depending on which you purchased will make a bit of difference in how you get them ready for the big day. Hopefully your ham is already waiting or on its way since Christmas is only 6 days away! Can you believe it!! Cooked Hams If you’ve purchased your ham pre-cooked, the only labor task will be the slicing. Once you receive your fully cooked ham, immediately freeze or refrigerate until ready to use.
