Food for the Southern Soul Lavington Farms Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice
Lavington Farms popular Charleston Gold Aromatic rice is the aromatic off-spring of the much-heralded Carolina Gold variety that has flourished in the lowcountry’s kitchens for decades. The rice is characterized by its rich golden hull and distinct, unmatched nutty flavor. The grain is cultivated and harvested right here in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Produced by Lavington Farms, the Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice is representative of the perfect marriage of a quintessential southern staple and a delectable basmati rice with deep international roots. This gold aromatic rice was developed right in South Carolina in the late 20th-century by Drs. Buford Shepard of Clemson University and Gurdev Kush of the International Rice Research Institute. The duo sought to create a short stature gold hulled rice that kept the traditional plush mouth feel of Carolina Gold and maintained the distinct fragrance of an East Indian cool weather rice. Dr. Anna McClung continued to refine the plant into what it is now: Charleston Gold. Today, the rice is used in the homes of cooks nationwide, in professional and restaurant kitchens throughout the Lowcountry, and frequently pops up on a number of menus in Charleston’s bustling culinary scene. This rice is specially formulated to be served and soak up flavor. We recommend piling it under jambalaya or pairing it with a slab of country-style steak for the perfect base grain to absorb seasoning and add a savory smell and taste that is all its own. If you can't get enough to just buy one, you can try Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice 3 PackPackaging: 17-ounce paper bag.

Hubs Peanuts Hubs Peanut Brittle
This 16-ounce vacuum-sealed tin of Hubs Peanut Brittle is made locally, in Virginia, by the Hubbard Peanut Company. This peanut brittle is a must-have for the holidays and year-round. It makes for the perfect gift or sweet snack during the winter months. This Peanut Brittle is a Hubbard family favorite. After harvesting the peanuts, the Hubbards would historically save some extra and made this same brittle recipe for the holidays. Not just anyone can make peanut brittle of this quality. You can also have a taste of their other favorites such as Hubs Honey Kissed Virginia Peanuts. The Hubs workers manually stir the peanuts, mixed with sugars, butter, and extracts, constantly so no part of the brittle is uneven. The workers also make sure that all the brittle stays at the same temperature throughout the process, so no piece is under or overcooked. However, you’ll realize that all of this effort and attention to create this perfect tin of Peanut Brittle is worth it after you try the Brittle for the first time In 1954, Hubs Peanuts was created by Dot and HJ Hubbard when Dot wanted a little extra spending money to help with family expenses. Her father already owned and operated a peanut farm, and she used a family recipe for peanuts from when she was younger to transform them into an irresistible snack. Dot developed so many and unique ways to cook peanuts, that all became standard practice for peanut companies today. The brand and the family of Hubs Peanuts became popular in Virginia and beyond, creating the need for more farmers and thus more customers. Now, over 65 years later, Hubs Peanuts is still doing the same thing, the same way, and has the same delicious taste in every single peanut.

Food for the Southern Soul Creole Gumbo
The flavorful, spiced Creole roots of Gumbo go beyond any particular recipe—they touch on the very history of the Louisiana-born stew. Its name derives from the west African word for okra, and the roux comes from French culinary techniques. It was served during the 1803 gubernatorial reception in New Orleans and has grown in popularity and variations across the South over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Chefs and home cooks throughout the region have long perfected recipes they covet. A batch made from scratch can take hours to prepare, but if you want instant satisfaction, this Creole Gumbo from Food for the Southern Soul offers a fast route to the Bayou. The tomato-based stew pulls warmth from bell peppers and texture from okra, and it does the heavy lifting when it comes to getting dinner on the table. Simply add a few shrimp to the soup when you’re about to take it off the heat and then serve over rice. But if you want some sweetness forward but still rooted in heat, the Slow Burn Peach Grilling Sauce and BlackJack Barbecue is an excellent, versatile addition for everyday cooking. Why Food for the Southern Soul Gumbo? Made by Food for the Southern Soul, this Creole Gumbo is just one of many pantry meals, snacks, and ingredients that celebrate the South’s diverse and storied cooking traditions.
