Just across the state line off of Route 121 through a bucolic stretch of rolling farmlands sits the historic town of Greenville in Darke County. (The Wild West star and folk hero, Annie Oakley, got her roots in this area.) Many of the buildings are as original in character as they are rich in personality. Take the “Coffee Pot”, for instance. They serve seriously good espresso and decadent desserts to share! It’s enough to rev up your engine and keep you going for a trip down the road to a functioning gristmill dating back to 1849. At “Bear’s Mill”, I keep supplied with fresh cornmeal ground on the original French buhr stones powered by water from the Greenville Creek. This is the same yellow cornmeal used in recipes from Gail’s Kitchen and featured often in “Eating My Way Through the Alphabet”. Some things are really worth the trip!
