The Charming Corner Store In Kentucky With The Best Country Ham In The State

There are a few specific foods in the state of Kentucky that are simply done right and are must-tries whenever you’re in the Bluegrass. Everyone thinks of the Kentucky Hot Brown and Fried Chicken, but another meal you must experience is country ham. Whether on its own, piled on a biscuit, or placed between two slices of bread with some mustard, perfectly smoked country ham is a Kentucky staple. If you’d like to try the best of the best, then head to the small town of Princeton and the historic Newsom’s Old Mill Store. This general store has been around for over a century and its Col. Newsom’s Aged Kentucky Country Ham is as delicious as it gets.
