Weidmann’s in Meridian, Mississippi

Beautiful restaurant with the problem of deciding which delicious dish to choose from the dozens of beautifully described plates.  This restaurant also comes with a tasty tradition of serving peanut butter as a starting snack.

The Peanut Butter Crocks

Each table at Weidmann’s is set with a handmade peanut buter crock and an assortment of crackers.  This tradition dates back to the 1940′s, when legend has it there was a shortage of butter due to the war.  A guest mentioned to Henry Weidmann that peanut butter would be a good replacement to accompany the crackers. Henry embraced the concept and eventually found a potter in Louiseville, Mississippi to make the crocks.  There is now a local potter in Meridian making the crocks by hand.
