Sorghum making set for Saturday in Theodosia
Jon Kruger, left, Bill Barnes and Magda Preston man the sorghum cooker during last year’s big sorghum-making session in Theodosia. Along with other members of the Ozarks Neighborly Exchange, they will be making sorghum again this Saturday, Sept. 15, behind the old Ledbetter store on Highway 160 at the west end of Theodosia. Everyone is welcome to stop by and watch the process. The finished product will be sold for $14 per quart and should be ready around noon. The group, which calls itself the Sorghum Consortium, includes Roy Johnson and Chuck Blanchard of Theodosia, Jon Kruger and wife Jule of Isabella, Bill Barnes of Thornfield, Jay Jacobs of Dora and Tom Kennedy of Clarkridge, Arkansas.
