Growing up in Canton, I remember as a child it being a BIG DEAL when we had company for my dad to drive to Barberton and pick up chicken and hot sauce from Belgrade Gardens. Food just tasted better back then! The chicken was chickeny-er and the hot sauce, which now I know is not exactly sauce, was delicious. I occasionally make fried chicken the Southern way soaking it in peppered buttermilk, rolling in seasoned flour, dunking it in an egg wash then rolling it again in Panko bread crumbs to fry in very hot peanut oil. It's good and I always buy organic, free-range whole chicken cut into pieces which drives my mom crazy because it is so expensive. Such is our world where food is mass produced and all the flavor is gone. But I remember the 50's & 60's being the Baby Boomer that I am. Nostalgic article and now I am going to make the hot sauce next time and fry my chicken in lard to see if I can stir up a memory. ;<)
