The height resembles that of a thin cracker and makes for the perfect vessel for other southern treats to rest on.

You will never get enough of this so make sure you get Charleston Benne Wafers 4 Pack for your supplies.Benne Wafers have been unique to the Lowcountry since the rich agricultural region was colonized in the 17th century. Benne — the Bantu word for sesame — was brought across the Atlantic from Africa and planted and cultivated extensively throughout the South on farms and plantations. Although a countless number of Lowcountry recipes and iconic dishes call for this nutty seed raw or toasted, none of them are as widely loved or recognized as the iconic Benne Wafer. Packaging: 6-ounce clear tub.

  • Hubbard Peanut Company Home Cooked Salted Virginia Peanuts 20oz. Tin

    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.

Sauté a light-skinned fish and add Bourbon Barrel Foods Bluegrass Soy Sauce to make a high-end fish sauce. Use it as a finishing sauce to make your dish complete.

It stands out from other soy sauces as being the only one in the world to be fermented in bourbon barrels. Bluegrass Soy Sauce was first made by owner Matt Jamie at his house.

  • Tidewater Shrimp Sauce & Marinade and Grits Set

    Food for the Southern Soul Tidewater Shrimp Sauce & Marinade and Grits Set

    Shrimp and grits reign throughout the Southeast coast as a quintessential food. Born throughout the Lowcountry in the kitchens of enslaved people, the dish’s roots come from west African dishes of ground maize and shellfish. It later gained popularity among sailors who, during shrimping season, doctored up their morning grits with fresh shrimp, earning the meal another moniker of “breakfast shrimp.” The Charleston Favorites Tidewater Shrimp Sauce and Marinade and Grits set celebrates the Southern origins of shrimp and grits and gives home cooks the primary tools they need to prepare this rich and flavorful meal in just 30 minutes. The Tidewater Shrimp Sauce and Marinade comes from the Food for the Southern Soul brand. Its collection of specialty foods and ingredients brings regional flavors and signature dishes from the Gulf, Lowcountry, Appalachia, Chesapeake Bay, and beyond to tables throughout the country. You can also try Battery Barbecue Gift Box, it is such  good company for The Tidewater Shrimp Sauce. Dinnertime with the Tidewater Shrimp Sauce & Marinade and Grits Set The Tidewater Shrimp Sauce starter blends a heated mix of peppers, spices, and oils. It needs nothing more than a stick of melted butter before it’s ready to pour over fresh shrimp in a baking dish and go into the oven. Free to include any tasty additions with the shrimp as they bake, such as mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, or even some sliced andouille sausage. While everything cooks, prepare the Charleston Favorites Stone Ground Grits. You can boil them with water and butter if you wish, but we love to dress them up with heavy cream, Worcestershire sauce, cheese, or hot sauce. Remove the shrimp mixture from the heat and serve over the creamy grits. In less than an hour, you’ve channeled decades of culinary history onto the dinner table.
