....or did I just dream that? I worked a very short, unsuccessful stint there as a waitress in the early 90's and I remember a huge vat of syrupy pine resin and dipping potatoes in it.

I was told that the crackly coating sealed in flakiness and fluffiness and stuff. Surely I can't have just imagined something like this? Anyone?

I have no idea, but I love their chicken & dumplings and their fried apples. So sad...no cracker barrel near me....
I think that I deceive genius.
Yep you remember correctly!

I've never heard of this. Sounds interesting, not in a "I want to eat that" way but in a " okay interesting" way.

What does it taste like?

The skin would be crackly and hard-glazed, and not edible. I just did some googling and read that CB stopped it because customers were eating the skins. Not sure if it's true or not but I can see it happening.

I used to hide back where the vat was bc it was sooo warm and cozy back there. I detested being a waitress but I loved dipping and wrapping the potatoes.

This sounded nuts so I had to Google it - apparently this is a pretty common method of baking potatoes, especially outdoors. Who the heck knew? I've found posts about about people eating them at Cracker Barrel and summer camp. I guess people will eat any damn thing.

You can make your own. One source even said FLW's Falling Water had a pot built in just for this purpose.
