I had a terrific time at the Buckwheat Festival last week in Ohiopyle. Al Smith hasn’t lost his touch with those buckwheat cakes. They are light as a feather and just as tangy as a day in the fall. Dale Leonard was stationed in the fire hall with a small army of sausage grillers. Everyone I talked to thought the sausage this year was the best ever. It had just the right amount of spice. They were also making apple cider right out in front of the firehouse from locally grown apples. It doesn’t get any fresher or tastier than that.
It was a gorgeous day to be out in the country and we enjoyed the brisk air and changing colors. The river was running very high and fast. Now I can’t wait until spring when they have the next festival. I’ll post the date as soon as possible so you can make plans to be there.
