  • Lavington Farms Charleston Gold Aromatic Rice

    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 Home Cooked Salted Virginia Peanuts

    This 20-ounce vacuum-sealed tin of Hubs Home Cooked Salted Virginia Peanuts is crafted locally, from the Hubbard farms in Virginia. What looks like a simple peanut could not be farther from it. The Salted Virginia Peanuts are extra-large, so you know you’re getting your money’s worth. They’re home-cooked, blister fried, water blanched, and taste incredible. The peanuts are one-of-a-kind on their own, but after tossing in their gourmet salt, Hubs has created the premier salted peanut. These peanuts pack a mighty punch and are amazing for your body and mind. Peanuts have 7 grams of protein per ounce, promote weight loss, are cholesterol-free, inhibit cancer growth, and have close to half of the 13 available vitamins for normal growth and health and 35% of the essential minerals. After all of those health benefits, they still taste unbelievable! What other snack can do that? Hubs Peanuts was founded by Dot and HJ Hubbard in 1954 when Dot wanted to make a little extra spending money to help with family expenses. Her father already had an operating peanut farm, and she remembered a family recipe for salted peanuts from when she was younger. Dot came up with so many unique and different ways to cook the peanuts, that all became standard practice for peanut companies today. The brand and the family of Hubs Peanuts grew and spread, producing 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 peanut. Not only do they come with the original Hub's Home Cooked Salted Virginia Peanuts, they also come in many interesting flavors such as Hubs Honey Kissed Virginia Peanuts and Hubs Sweet Heat.
