Alabama vs Tennessee

Hand-crafted petite pecan pies roll through the foothills for a day of lavish tailgating & steal the attention of football fanatics. Graced with a collection of fine Tennessee players, whiskey & sorghum, the handsome tartlets can be prepared following basic fundamentals & they’re even easier to pack for a Rocky Top road trip. The sorghum delivers a refined flavor or try it in a batch of Gridiron Whiskey Caramel Corn for another decadent tailgating snack idea.

A Sweet Surrender To Sorghum

Sorghum is an extremely versatile, drought-tolerant crop filled with essential nutrients that can be used in numerous capacities from livestock silage to a gluten-free food alternative. It’s also the South’s answer to good quality syrup. Bold yet well balanced, Tennessee grown sweet sorghum cane is harvested in the fall & pressed for juice directly in the fields. The juice is then boiled & evaporated creating the coveted syrup. Use as a pure substitution in place of molasses, corn & maple syrup for a distinctive upgrade in your favorite recipes. Let the travel-friendly advice below guide you & get ready to enjoy first-string refreshments courtesy of the opponents mainstays all the while winning a bevy of compliments with a well-curated roster of game day goodies.
