The shop – Just What I Want – is in Alexandria, KY and is really cute. There are just a couple of parking spots and it sits on a corner where you’d picture Aunt Bea walking out of any house at any moment!
Out back they had a whole wall of photos to show you the process of making the syrup. It’s got quite a few steps – so it can’t really be shown in five minutes.
A lot of it involves boiling…and sitting. That’s an afternoon I could handle – sitting outside just enjoying the fresh air watching a pot boil.
Then we headed inside the shop which has a great mix of food products (syrup, fudge, jellies, etc…), antiques and artwork.
And I’m a sucker for anything retro! Larry said his grandma even had a set almost like this when he was a kid. Bright yellow – perfection for me! I would love to have this in a kitchen!
