Two Country Hens Tusquittee Valley Granola
Like so many things in this part of the world, Tusquittee is a Cherokee word, which means “Where the waterdogs laughed.” A waterdog is a type of salamander sometimes called a mudpuppy and locally “a hellbender.” It is a common word geographically speaking. There is a section of Clay County N.C. named Tusquittee (just 1 mile north of us). It is bordered on the north by the Fires Creek Bear Sanctuary which is in the Nantahala National Forest. This granola was made with the mountains in my mind. The rolled oats gives it this great crunch once the cinnamon, local honey and sweet brown sugar has been added and baked. Once I add the toasted coconut and whole cranberries, it is hard to put this product down.
