I had no idea what sonker was prior to touring the Surry Sonker Trail. What an absolute treat! It was so much fun getting to taste different variations of the recipe. What I also loved about taking the trail was experiencing the local attractions along the way - historic sites, unique shops, and genuinely sweet locals.

I'll definitely take the trail again!

Oh, I know about sonkers!  My Grandma Stonesteet made the best sweet potato sonker that I have ever eaten.  She served it with sweetened cream (dip).  Her recipe is in the cookbook that is sold at the "Sonker Festival".  My husband and I attended forthe first time last year and had a great time.  Blue Grass music on the front porch, several kinds of sonker, and a beautiful afternoon.  What a great way to spend time outside.  I loved the tour of the house and the civil war display inside.

Grew up in Mt Airy.  And though gone for 40 years, have always relished the memories of that fine town.  Remember clearly my  mother making sonker along with her other wonderful dishes.  She made these up until her death.  Good stuff, wonderful memories.  Sonker Festival eh?  Might be an excuse to come visit my hometown.
