South Carolina Peaches
“What is South Carolina known for?” Peaches
South Carolina peaches are said to be the sweetest in the south. The South Carolina Peach festival in Gaffney, SC, celebrates the South Carolina peach industry. This festival brings vital business to the state’s economy. Enjoy running in a race, a peach dessert contest, a parade and entertainment for the whole family. Make a stop at the famous Gaffney Peachoid, a 135 foot tall water tower, shaped like a giant peach. The Peachoid is a popular tourist attraction and moreover, has been featured in Netflix’s House of Cards series.
Bring a taste of South Carolina home with the “Old Timey” Peach Bread recipe included in South Carolina Hometown. This fluffy dessert bread, topped with a wonderful lemon glaze, will have your family and friends raving.
Grits ‘n’ More
The festival foods certainly don’t stop at peaches. For instance, if you are craving Southern classics, visit the World Grits Festival in Saint George, SC. This grits themed event features wholesome recreation and entertainment for families everywhere. For a grits dish with South Carolina flair, try the Breakfast Shrimp and Grits recipe also included in the cookbook.
South Carolina Seafood
Speaking of shrimp, seafood is one of those South Carolina gifts that undoubtedly keeps on giving. The community of Hilton Head Island celebrates seafood with the Hilton Head Seafood Festival. This family friendly, week-long celebration of local seafood features special events, celebrity chefs, live music, and more.
With South Carolina Hometown, you can bring South Carolina’s coastal cuisine right into your kitchen. Try the Coastal Crab Fritters recipe also included in the book. These golden brown bites taste best with fresh crabmeat and will melt in your mouth.
A sampling of South Carolina culinary traditions would not be complete without a taste of South Carolina-style barbecue. The town of Kershaw hosts the Kershaw Hog Jam. Come and enjoy the tantalizing flavors of the barbecue cook-off!
