More stuff from Tennessee. Am I boring ya'll yet? This time off to Lynchburg, about an hour and a half drive south from Nashville. We went to Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House. The meals are served at two sittings and served family style at a table full of other folks -- pass to the left please.
The table was covered with fried chicken, meatloaf, turnip greens, macaroni and cheese, apples baked in Jack Daniels (yum!), black-eyed peas, cole slaw, corn bread and of course, a glass of sweet tea. My cousin Jane, Richard and I just loved it.
After our lunch, we headed to the Jack Daniel's Distillery and took a tour of the premises and found out how the whisky was made.
The cave spring flows year-round at 800 gallons per minute at a constant temperature of 56° and is virtually iron free. It’s the reason why the distillery was located in this spot originally – and why it’s remained there ever since.
I gave the 5'2" statue of Jack, who's standing guard at this spot, a wee peck on the cheek and thanked him for the fine visit down south.
