Welcome to Okracast, the SFA podcast! Ahead on this week’s episode: author and Florida native Diane Roberts sings the praises of the Apalachicola Bay oyster. “Once you have one,” Roberts says, “you will never want another oyster. You will only want that oyster again and again.” Then SFA oral historian Sara Wood brings us to Fulks Run, Virginia to meet Ron Turner, the twelfth generation of Turners in Fulks Run. In 1949, Ron’s father opened Fulks Run Grocery in the Shenandoah Valley. Over the years, the grocery expanded to include a ham-curing house. Today Ron runs the business with his wife Peg, where they cure between 6,000 and 8,000 hams each year. Hungry yet? Visit www.southernfoodways.org for more.
