My entire family travels to Ararat, VA each summer for a week long vacation in the beautiful mountains! We rent a cabin near the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoy a slow, relaxing week together. The kids love exploring the outdoors, the adults get super competitive over evening board game sessions, and best of all – we eat DELICIOUS and awesome food all week long.
There is a small deli down the mountain – The Gap Deli – that serves pinto beans and cornbread. I’ve enjoyed it for the past few years each time we visit and this year decided I HAD to make them myself when I got home.
Here is my closest recreation! Serve it along side some honey cornbread and make it a meal. Add some raw chopped onions or chow chow to the top and enjoy!
