Lowcountry Livin’

Lowcountry–is spelled correctly, that is not a typo so ignore the red squiggle under it.  It is an actual word down here in South Carolina.  It is the region along the coast including the Sea Islands; such as the more well known Sullivan’s Island, Folly Island and James Island.  In the lowcountry shrimp and grits are a staple food.  You can basically find it on any menu.  One item you don’t typically find is creole, because creole is a more typical Louisiana  staple.  But there is a little company in Charleston that is trying to make a name for South Carolina in creole.

Carolina creole is a sweeter sauce than typical creole but it is still packed with tons of spices and flavors.  When I first stuck a spoon in the jar and snuck a taste I literally had to say “wooh.”  The flavors merry and compliment each one so well that your taste buds breath is taken away.  I made it with the white rice and shrimp and I couldn’t stop eating it.  I made enough for a few dinners and ate it all in one sitting.
