score one for houston
Jen and I went to the Houston Dairymaids warehouse on Saturday to check it out. We’d heard lots of great stuff about it and had visited with the Dairymaids at the Rice Farmer’s Market but had never been to the warehouse. I heard they just had an AC installed so I figured it was as good a time as any to visit.
We were thrilled to sample all of the cheeses and we oohed and ahhed over the olives but the real winner was when we saw this sign:
Sorry for the fuzzy shot — I was trying to be discreet because I’m sure they already thought I was crazy when I started hyperventilating upon spotting mayhaw jelly in Texas. People, this is a TRUE DELICACY and you usually aren’t lucky enough to find it outside of Louisiana.
I’m sure it will be no where near as good as my mom’s but I bought a jar to try. Y’all should head up Airline this Saturday and pick one up too. Of course, it is delicious on biscuits or toast, or you can serve it with cheese (which is probably why they are selling it at the Dairymaids’ warehouse), or — best use yet — you can use it to make the PB&J cookies!
