From seafood to barbecue and peanuts to peaches, there is a South Carolina festival recipe that everyone will surely enjoy.
South Carolina Peaches
“What is South Carolina known for?” you ask. Peaches! The South Carolina Peach festival celebrates the South Carolina peach industry, which, in fact, brings vital business to the state’s economy. Festivalgoers will enjoy a sanctioned barbecue cook-off, a peach dessert contest, 5K and 10K road races, arts & crafts, food vendors, live music, and so much more. Don’t forget to 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’re craving Southern classics, visit the World Grits Festival in Saint George. This grits-themed event features wholesome recreation and entertainment for families everywhere. Roll in a vat of grits, run in a 5K, learn to grind grits, or compete in the corn toss. 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 home. 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 wouldn’t be complete without a taste of South Carolina-style barbecue. The town of Kershaw has you covered with its Kershaw Hog Jam, a festival centered on a tantalizing barbecue cook-off that includes live music, arts & crafts vendors, and range of children’s activities. Spice up your next backyard barbecue with the Beef Spare Ribs with BBQ Sauce recipe included in the book. There’s nothing like perfectly cooked spareribs basted with a homemade BBQ sauce.
