"Fried Dandelions (Appalachian Style)" by Micah Funk; "This recipe consists of picking the largest dandelion flowers and leaving the entire stem behind, battering the flowers up and frying them in butter. Has a flavor similar to that of mushrooms." Makes 8 servings.
Kentucky Jam Cake (aka Blackberry Jam Cake ) - its a regional cake with lots of spices, blackberry jam, walnuts, caramel icing, and sometimes a shot of bourbon. A tip regarding this cake is to make it a few days in advance and let the flavors blend (if you can stand the wait), it gets better and better.
