When my daughter was in college at Western Carolina in Cullowhee, NC, eevery Fall they would have Mountain Heritage Days and people would have food booths set up. Cherokee is only about 10-15 miles away and the people would sell Indain fry bread and other foods. But the best thing I remember is we would go over to Cherokee and buy parched corn.
That was always so good. I sure do wish someone could tell me how to prepare that. It really makes a good snack.
