  • Judy Broyles got her recipe for caramel icing from a friend many years ago. She has seen variations of it in cookbooks. Either dark or light brown sugar can be used to get slightly different flavors.

    Broyles has been making this icing since her children were young. Caramel and chocolate is her favorite combination. She also uses the icing on yellow cake, spice cake, and white cake. It can be used on nearly any cake mix or scratch cake recipe.

  • Rhubarb is a nostalgic vegetable that many Spencer County residents remember from childhood.

    “My daddy always had rhubarb,” said Mary Snyder, who lived on a 400-acre farm near High Grove for many years.

    Snyder, who was “born and raised just over the Nelson County line near Bloomfield,” said that when her father cleaned out the hen house, he would put the manure around the rhubarb patch to fertilize it.

    “We always had nice fat big stalks, bigger than your thumb,” said Snyder.
