Man Hold Up! — Colonel Sanders’ nephew might have revealed the secret “eleven herbs and spices” recipe behind KFC’s world-famous chicken. The “Chicago Tribune” says Joe Ledington showed a reporter a hand-written recipe with the ingredients and measurements used in the company’s blend. The recipe was in a scrapbook that belonged to Ledington’s aunt, who was Sanders’ second wife. The most “secret” part of the secret recipe is white pepper, which Ledington says nobody knew how to use in the 1950s when Harlan Sanders began selling his fried chicken. The 67-year-old Ledington later told the “Tribune” he never showed the recipe to a reporter. KFC told the “New York Times” the recipe in the scrapbook is no more accurate than other claims made over the years.
