Road Trip for Hash (no, not what you are thinking)

Occasionally we at Moore Food, Please like to let other people feed us. Yesterday, Laura and I went to visit our friend Mandie in Pacolet, South Carolina and attend her family's Hash. In case you are unfamiliar with Pacolet, it is the town near Spartanburg with a big horse in the middle of a river (pictured to the left).

Now those of you, like me, who are not native to South Carolina may be wondering just what a "hash" is. Well the best I could tell when I got here was that it was a bunch of stuff mashed up into some kind of delicious meat paste. Wikipedia has an article on it here. Mandie's family makes a big production out of the meal and pretty much the entire town of Pacolet, SC comes by to partake.

A hash is not normally very vegetarian friendly, but Mandie did a wonderful job of preparing vegetarian dishes for those who don't drool at the idea of meat paste.

Yup, we ate at the "Eatin' Shed"
Hash is typically cooked in a large single pot, this family doesn't screw around when it comes to their pot.

The desserts were delicious!

  1. We missed it! Wish we would've gone, but having a semi-newborn and traveling wasn't doable this year. Looks like ya'll had fun!
