Hello All, and thank you for your encouragement. Our store is located in Downtown Tuscola, one little town block from the tracks.
Tuscola is approx. 30 miles south of Champaign/Urbana. We even have our own exit directly off of I-57. Those who prefer small highways will find us along Route 45, which used to be THE road to Chicago.
We make our own ice cream and candy. We even have horehound candy, which I make from steeping the herb for hours. Then I cook up the "tea" with sugar and corn syrup. After it reaches 300 degrees, we pour it out of the copper kettle onto a big marble table, and cut it into squares after it cools just enough.
If any of you have candy-making questions, I’m happy to share what I know. I’m using my late grandfather’s and late father’s recipes.
