    during the interview he mentioned that he had a hard time finding horse rolled, fire boiled sorghum syrup. I go to a festival that does this every fall. You can email me and I can send you info

    I'm from Benton County Tennessee which used to be famous for Benton County Sorghum. Cracker Barrel once carried it. Alas, I don't think anyone is making it there for commercial distribution. To me it's a perfect light-colored sorghum and, as Sean Brock said, just right with biscuits.
