Mint leaves or known by the scientific name Mentha piperita is an herb that is well known throughout the world, especially since many are used for a variety of products such as breath fresheners, chewing gum, toothpaste, mouthwash and oil wind. One of the major health benefits of mint leaves is the effect on the body’s digestive system. Mint oil is a stimulant, so it may be useful in treating depression, stress and headaches. The mint leaves are also used as a condiment and decorative items that are used in a variety of culinary dishes and drinks.


There are literally hundreds of different tomato varieties. Loaded with antioxidants, low in calories, and packed with anti-cancer benefits — tomatoes can be considered a triple threat when it comes to fruits. They’re also high in lycopene, which may promote cardiovascular health and helps prevent skin from sun damage. Regular consumption of this power fruit can help lower the risk of prostate cancer in men. Choose tomatoes that have rich colors- deep reds are a great choice. Today tomatoes are enjoyed worldwide— to the tune of about 130 million tons per year.

Produce 101


Although you may not snack on garlic cloves the way you snack on almonds, this herb is a must-have on your shopping list. This hearth-healthy herb not only reduces your body’s cholesterol and triglycerides, it protects blood cells and blood vessels from inflammatory and oxidative stress. As an added bonus, research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that compounds in garlic may prevent cellular changes that may lead to cancerous tumor development and inhibit tumor growth.



Spinach offers twice as much fiber as other greens. So when you want a salad that’s going to fill you up, go for the spinach variety. Spinach is a nutrition superstar, even a fairly good source of iron. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals, some of which are hard to find in other foods. So toss it in your salad or serve it as a steamed side, as an excellent (low-calorie) way to get your daily dose of vitamin K. Still need convincing to eat your greens? According to research published in the International Journal of Cancer, consuming spinach protects against the occurrence of some aggressive cancer.

Singleton builds wining game plan Ruby Lee’s opens South End location Reservations are highly recommended By Associate Editor Ruth Ragland

Ruby Lee’s proprietor Tim Singleton is capitalizing on the successful formula of sports bar, blues music and soul food restaurant he launched on Hilton Head’s North end, with Ruby Lee’s South at 19 Dunnagan’s Alley. The decision to expand to another location came about because, “The concept has show us it’s pretty foolproof,” Singleton said. “We’ve been turning people away every night.” Reservations are strongly suggested. Singleton said he’s catering to Ruby Lee’s “diverse, sophisticated audience” with entertainment seven nights a week, featuring favorite local performers like jazz and blues saxophonist Earl Williams; Deas Guyz; Lavon Stevens; pop, soul and R&B singer/songwriter Steel and the Ear Candy Band; and blues guitarist Eric Culberson out of Savannah. Ruby Lee’s charges a $7 entertainment fee, per person, per show because, “That’s how the band gets paid,” Singleton explained. “We’re out to serve our clientele,” he said, with a private dining room for parties and functions. David Young, the chef at Ruby Lee’s South, has added to the core menu of soul food favorites with a roasted whole flounder


and whole crab entrees. What’s Ruby Lee’s key to success? “Doing the right thing by people by serving them well, and giving them a bigger bang for their buck,” Singleton said. Patrons of Ruby Lee’s South can expect a “complete experience of mature fun,” with happy hour specials and in dining and entertainment. “Look out for Ruby Lee’s,” Singleton said, predicting more locations to come in the future.

Gourmet Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe by Brooke McLay

Most chocolatiers will charge you an arm and a leg for such goodness, but we’ve uncovered some secrets for making gourmet chocolate-covered strawberries right in your kitchen. Just gather together a few simple supplies, set the timer for 20 minutes and you’re just three steps away from incredible, gorgeous chocolatecovered strawberries. Ingredients 16 oz fresh whole strawberries 1 1/2 cups good quality milk, dark or white chocolate chips (9 oz) Betty Crocker™ Decor Selects candy sprinkles, nonpareils or colored sugars Directions Step 1. Wash the strawberries. Strawberries shouldn’t be washed far in advance. Washing them just before you use them guarantees maximum freshness and minimal bruising. Run each strawberry under cold water. Don’t rub the berries. Just allow a light stream of water to dribble over each strawberry for about 10 seconds. (The exception to this is if you see obvious signs of dirt. In that case, carefully rub the dirt off with a soft basting brush or clean washcloth). Place the washed strawberries on a clean paper towel. Allow to air dry completely before dipping in melted chocolate. Step 2. Melt the chocolate. Again, this might sound like a simple task, but there are a few secrets to properly melting chocolate. While a double-broiler is the safest method,


we’re going for the quickest option, which is melting the chocolate in a microwave. Use good-quality chocolate. It may not be true of everything, but when buying chocolate, you usually get what you pay for. If there’s ever been a time to splurge, it’s now. High-quality chocolate will turn your strawberries from ordinary to extraordinary. Use a microwave-safe glass bowl. Never microwave your chocolate for more than 30 seconds at a time. When following our recipes for gourmet strawberries, you’ll be melting chocolate chips for 30 seconds, then stirring them. Melting, then stirring. Melting, then stirring. Chocolate will melt before it really gets hot to the touch, so you want to warm it just enough to melt it, but not enough to cause the milk solids in the chocolate to separate. Step 3. Dip the strawberries. With clean strawberries and smooth, melted chocolate, you’re ready to start dipping! Before you begin, make sure you’ve set out a large piece of parchment paper. Parchment paper offers a completely non-stick surface, which allows the underside of your chocolate strawberries to cool with a smooth, flat surface. To dip the strawberries, pull all the leafy greens carefully into your fingers,

then submerge the red flesh of the strawberry into the chocolate. Gently swirl the strawberry around the pool of chocolate, making sure all sides are evenly coated. Lift the strawberry from the chocolate and place it carefully on the parchment paper. If you’re going gourmet, now’s the time to decorate your strawberries! Sprinkle on your favorite nonpareils,

crushed candies or sparkling sugars. Allow the strawberries to cool completely at room temperature. (Putting the strawberries in the fridge to speed up the cooling might cause the chocolate to develop spots due to the dramatic drop in temperature). Once the chocolate is hardened, eat and enjoy. Or wrap your strawberries in a pretty box, and surprise someone you love!
