The New Funnel Cake for 2022 at the Florida Strawberry Festival
Manage episode 318837481 series 3082480
I speak with "Mama Jane" Harris from Carnival Eats. Every year for Plant City, she creates something new for fair food fans to try.
I first fell in Mama Jane's desserts about 5 or 6 years ago when she invented "Funnel Bacon on a Stick." She took a stick of thick bacon, dipped it in funnel cake batter, fried it up and topped it with powdered sugar and a maple butter glaze. It was something. Last year it was eclipsed by a strawberry lemon ricotta funnel cake. But this year, she might even top that.
Mama announced that Plant City will get a Strawberry Key Lime Funnel Cake for 2022. Two Florida flavors in one dessert. The strawberries will be from Plant City and fresh lime juice will be used to give it that local flavor. Top it with powdered sugar and some fresh strawberries and a key lime glaze.
