Our favorite summer holiday is right around the corner! We'll be kicking back and celebrating Independence Day Gullah Geechee style this year. The table is set and the countdown is on! If you're not familiar with Charleston based, Gullah Gourmet... you're in for a treat! Each bag contains ingredients to make delicious gourmet meals, dips, breads and desserts! By adding one or two items from your own pantry or fridge you'll have something tasty to serve up in minutes!
Let's break the rules and start with dessert! After all... it is a holiday! ;)
GEECHIE PEACHIE COBBLA
This year we're serving up some Geechie Peachie Cobbla y'all! The hardest part of putting together a cobbler dessert is whipping up the crust. Thankfully, Gullah Gourmet takes the legwork out of it. The bag includes everything you'll need to make the perfect crust for your peach cobbler. Y'all won't believe it but all you need to add is a splash of milk and a can of peaches! Bake for 30 minutes and serve up warm! We always top our cobbler with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream!
SHRIMP DIPPIN' TING
We can't get enough of this yummy dip! For this crowd-pleasing appetizer you'll need mayo, whipped cream cheese and most importantly, fresh-caught local shrimp! We recommend you chill this dip and serve it up with crackers! Warning: this one will go fast amongst your friends so be sure to snag two bags!
We've certainly saved the best for last! We can't keep the Gullah Gourmet Shrimp & Grits on the shelves!
SHRIMP & GRITS
You may have heard Paula and Bobbie Dean talking about this one! Or perhaps you heard Food Network raving about it?! No matter where you heard it first, it's a recipe worth sharing! The bag includes fresh yellow stone ground grits and the sauce packet to make the delicious gravy. Saute some more of that fresh local shrimp in olive oil or butter (we're partial to butter!), add water to the packets and plate your dish! Each bag serves four. Yep, it's just as simple as it sounds!
There you have it, a delicious 4th of July spread in under an hour! Stop in and see us to pick up your 4th of July essentials for the table and beyond.
Happy Independence Day, friends!
