“Slow as molasses” often refers to a thick and slow pouring syrup, but
what many may not know is that the process of making it is not
particularly quick either.
Doug Johnson is best known for the
hard work he does managing the Neshoba County Fairgrounds and while that
is a year-round job, he still makes time every fall to engage in the
hobby of syrup making.
