We titled our special this week our “Slow Food Sale”. Now, what exactly does that mean? Noun Food that is produced or prepared in accordance with local culinary traditions, typically using high-quality locally sourced ingredients.

It strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine, and encourages farming of plants, seeds, and livestock...

Let’s face it. This has been a weird year so far. With all of the uncertainty in the world, things can look dark. But, as the adage goes- “It is always darkest, just before dawn.”  People may feel disconnected from their friends, coworkers, and extended family; but the nuclear family seems to be an exception. I cannot tell you how many people I have heard say something to the effect of “I can’t remember the last time my family all sat down and ate at the dinner table before...

  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...
