“Come and Bake It!”

You may or may not be aware of the federal law that requires that food sold to the public must be produced in a certified commercial kitchen. Naturally home bakers and those who run those roadside stands were upset. That is how we got the Texas Cottage Food Bill, “a change in health department regulations that would allow home bakers and small farmers an exemption to sell cookies, cakes, jams and jellies and other low-risk prepared foods direct to the public.”

The bill passed both houses in a bi-partisan way, because Texas Democrats understand the ever growing menace of government.

If the governor signs it into law, the Texas Cottage Food Bill will grant home bakers, canners and farmers an exemption from regulations required that food sold to the public must be produced in a certified commercial kitchen. Some traditional Texas food products, like sorghum syrup, mayhaw and muscadine jelly and dewberry jam, almost disappeared under the current restrictions.

This may seem small, but it’s a great victory of the people against the government. In this way, little things mean a alot.
