Cigar Lounge is a high point for Beaufort smokers
Lowcountry smokers have found a home at Beaufort Tobacco’s Cigar Lounge Ruth Ragland Associate Editor
t’s no puffery to say that the lounge affords a commanding view of the Beaufort River from its secondfloor perch above Bellamy Curve at 1100 Carteret St., next to Magnolia Cafe. The lounge is appointed with comfortable leather seating, a sound system for music, and a widescreen television for watching sporting events. There’s a shaded patio with water views as well for enjoying a smoke in the great outdoors. Additionally, smokers can use the custom-built cornhole set built by one of the shop’s very own customers. Proprietor Raj Patel, a staunch smoker himself, was visiting Beaufort a few years ago when he discovered the city’s lack of a tobacconist. “I drove an hour away to get a cigar,” he said. Recognizing the need he researched

the business potential for a cigar shop in town and decided to open his own establishment. The shop now features custom made artwork from local artists and customers upon entry before leading to a peaceful lounge and the multi-room humidor. The store’s walk-in humidor offers
a wide assortment of the finest-quality cigars in a range of prices. He also stocks briar pipes, hookahs, lighters and other accessories, as well as the tobacco-free e-cigarettes. Patel prides himself on providing a cigar lounge with an atmosphere where both guys and gals can relax and enjoy a smoke. Many customers describe Beaufort Tobacco as a splendid place to tailgate

Angel Oak Tree Park
Photo: Ramzan Babar
Angel Oak Tree Park is located on Johns Island with no admission charge. On Johns Island stands the majestic Angel Oak. Estimated to be between 300-400 years old, the tree towers 65 feet high and has a circumference of 25.5 feet. Its area of shade is 17,000 square feet and its largest limb has a circumference of 11.5 feet, and a length of 89 feet. Live oaks are not particularly tall trees, but have wide-spreading canopies. Only in the very old specimens do you find massive limbs resting on the ground, as the limbs of the Angel Oak. The City of Charleston acquired the Angel Oak Park in 1991. The park also has a gift shop and picnic area. It is an absolute must see for anyone visiting Charleston South Carolina. Learn and celebrate the region’s cultural and natural history while visting the Agel Oak Tree Park. Make sure you bring a camera because you just won’t believe your eyes!

In The Know
Orchid Paulmeier runs her kitchen like she lives her life—surrounded by family, friends and feel-good food. When Orchid Paulmeier was eight years old her grandmother moved from the Philippines to live with her family in Orland Park, Illinois and with that grandmother came an awakening of Orchid’s culinary senses. After graduating from the University of Illinois in 1994, Orchid married her high school sweetheart and relocated to South Carolina. Thus, it was there where her culinary career began. She worked at several restaurants in the Hilton Head Island area and served as a corporate trainer for Long Horn Steakhouse before shifting from the hospitality industry to an entrepreneurial endeavor in 2000 as a personal chef. Throughout those years she never lost sight of a personal life goal to own a restaurant by the time she was thirty years of age. Which she did in 2003 with the opening her first restaurant, One Hot Mama’s. Orchid is not a trained chef. She has honed her culinary skills over time as a research chef to deliver food that people want with an emphasis on taste, nutrition and kid applause. In 2011 Orchid was among the fifteen finalists in Season Seven of the Next Food Network Star reality series. Bob Tuschman, General Manager of Food Network spoke of Orchid as “…the standout, and I have to say, I agreed with them, you are effervescent, luminescent every ‘escent’ I could think of…” In the same year Orchid’s signature line of barbecue sauces Perfect 10 and One Hot Asian went public under the One Hot Mama’s label. The sauces were featured in 2012 on the Southern Women’s Shows Celebrity Cooking Stage where Orchid embarked on a journey to bring her culinary experience to the public. In that same year the signature label of Orchid’s dry rub called Backyard BBQ Rub was launched at the
10 • WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM
Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival. Orchid gleans enthusiasm from her public appearances and participates annually in the Savannah Asian Festival, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival and Palmetto Bluff’s Music to Your Mouth. Orchid’s broadcast experience did not end with her elimination in the Next Food Network Star reality series. She launched a partnership with WHHI-TV in 2012 that continues today as the host of a local culinary program, The Restaurant Show that receives airtime seven days a week via a twenty four hour broadcast. Between a weekly shoot schedule for the culinary show, annual festival engagements and actively serving in the operations of her two restaurants One Hot Mama’s and The Lodge it can certainly be said that Orchid has achieved the American Dream. However, her entrepreneurial spirit sees her continuing to reach forward. She is profiling a product line of One Hot Mama’s pies and sides that she hopes will gain an endorsement from a major broadcast outlet with national distribution. One Hot Mama’s ~ Hilton Head Island, SC www.onehotmamas.com The Lodge ~ Hilton Head Island, SC www.hiltonheadlodge.com The Restaurant Show ~ Beaufort-JasperHampton Counties, South Carolina Orchid is married to Mike Paulmeier who owns and operates a successful personal training business in the South Carolina Lowcountry market. He collaborates with Orchid to achieve her culinary endeavors and partners with her to raise their three children: Decker, Maile and Zoe.
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.
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 WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM • 11 aggressive cancer.

Recipe/photographs courtesy Sue Ade, Food columnist, Morris Publishing Group
Whether served at the kitchen table for supper, or in the dining room for a special dinner, a shrimp and grits meal is truly a luxury meal when made with freshly caught May River shrimp. Ingredients: 6 slices thick bacon, diced 3 tablespoons butter ½ cup chopped green bell pepper ½ cup chopped red bell pepper diced 1 small onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced Few dashes of Tabasco 1 pound large, or extra-large, fresh shrimp, peeled* and deveined (page 19) 1⅔ cups milk 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth 1 cup quick cooking grits 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or a mixture of shredded cheddar cheese and shredded parmesan cheese), plus additional cheese for garnish
Chopped scallions, for garnish Directions: Brown bacon in a large skillet. Stir in butter, pepper, onion and garlic and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Sprinkle with Tabasco. Toss in the shrimp and cook just until shrimp turn pink, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm. Bring the milk and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan; stir in the grits. Return the grits to a boil; reduce heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cheese(s) to the grits and stir until cheese is melted. Spoon the grits into individual serving bowls and top with the shrimp mixture. Garnish with shredded cheese and chopped scallions. Makes 6 servings. *Cook’s note: You may either peel away all of the shrimp’s shell, or leave the tail on.

Reasons to Use Apple Cider Vinegar Every Day
By Lisa Mitchell
It’s effective for pretty much anything— your skin, your hair, your house, and even your pets can benefit from its qualities. Raw, organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized, apple cider vinegar is so much more than a salad dressing! 1. Apple cider vinegar can detoxify your home. It’s made from apple juice and is fermented to hard apple cider. It’s then fermented a second time to become apple cider vinegar. By using ACV in lieu of other products, we instantly decrease the consumption of unnatural chemicals in our homes and daily lives. 2. It can make your hair shine. I recommend recycling an old shampoo bottle, then filling it with 1/2 a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a cup of cold water. Pour the solution through your hair after shampooing several times a week for dramatic results. 3. Natural apple cider vinegar regulates the pH of your skin. Dilute ACV with two parts water, and spread the concoction over your face with a cotton ball to replace your current toner. You can do this at night after washing, and in the morning before you apply your moisturizer. 4. It can remove stains from teeth. Rub teeth directly with apple cider vinegar, and rinse with water. 5. It can soothe sunburnt skin. Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath, and soak for 10 minutes to eliminate discomfort from sunburn. 6. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural aftershave. Fill a bottle with equal parts apple cider vinegar and water, and shake before applying to the face. 7. It’s an all-natural massage treatment. Rubbing apple cider vinegar on your hands and feet will give massage-like benefits and relief to tired hands and feet. 8. Apple cider vinegar can aid in weight loss. For daily weight management, add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 16
14 • WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM
ounces of water. This concoction can be sipped throughout the day. Data shows some limited, yet significant, weight loss benefits from sustained daily intake of acetic acid (which is a main ingredient in apple cider vinegar). In a 2009 study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry, it was found that subjects that consumed acetic acid for 12 weeks experienced significant declines in body weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference and triglycerides. Triglycerides contribute to the bad cholesterol that we want to avoid. 9. ACV can help you reduce heartburn. Natural remedy experts say you should begin to feel relief very shortly after taking a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar followed by a glass of water. Note that apple cider vinegar will not give relief if you have an ulcer. 10. The use of apple cider vinegar is effective in repelling fleas on your pets. One part vinegar and one part water can be sprayed on your pets fur and rubbed in generously to the skin. Saturate the entire coat, and continue every day for a few days to a week. Any flea infestation will surely be gone.
he arrival of summer, along with its sunny skies and beautiful weather, beckons homeowners to create a space to entertain guests and enjoy the great outdoors. Design an outdoor living room that merges style and function, and incorporates elements of indoor comfort. “It’s easier than ever to bring the comfort and style of your favorite indoor spaces into your porch, patio and other outdoor areas,” said Aimee Beatty, in-house stylist with Pier 1 Imports. “From comfy throw pillows to trendy rugs, colorful artwork and cheery curtains, new outdoor products boast durability and so much style that your patio will be the neighborhood’s go-to summer hot spot.” ARRANGE AWAY Treat your outdoor area as you would your living room. If space is limited, use sectionals to create seating in whatever arrangement fits best. If there is more room,
add an investment piece, such as the Echo Beach Dining Table from Pier 1 Imports. Finish the look by layering your favorite accessories, such as handcrafted trays, detailed lanterns and a colorful floral arrangement to create a cheerful centerpiece that makes your guests feel welcome. TIE IT ALL TOGETHER To let you in on a little secret — outdoor rugs tie everything together and really bring a space to life. Simply layer a rug, such as Pier 1 Imports’ chic Wavy Geo Rug, with a beautiful seating collection, colorful cushions and pillows, and you’ve got an outdoor area that makes everyone comfortable and happy.
a variety of outdoor lighting options, such as string lights, paper lanterns or floating LED candles placed around the patio. Fashion an elegant glow with lanterns in various sizes, such as the Scroll Trim Lanterns from Pier 1 Imports.
SERVE IN STYLE Al fresco entertaining always focuses on food, drinks and friends. A self-service food station or bar enhances the casual tone, freeing guests to grab refreshments whenever they please. Look for serving and drink carts that maximize space, such as the Rania Serving Cart from Pier 1 Imports, which has three levels so there’s plenty of room to stash an ice bucket, drink dispenser, snacks, lawn BE BRIGHT, ALL NIGHT games and more. The sun may still be shining So let the warmth of when the guests arrive, but the season bring many you’ll need something to memorable moments to your light up the night and keep life and stylish elements into the party going all evening your outdoor spaces.

How to shell (peel) and clean (devein) fresh shrimp Sue Ade, Food Columnist
Whether shrimp is peeled, or not, depends on how the shrimp is going to be used in a particular dish; deveining, on the other hand, is a matter of preference. Mostly, we devein shrimp for aesthetic reasons, but in large shrimp, the black intestinal vein can be gritty and full of sand, so if you’re planning to use large shrimp in your recipe, for full enjoyment, remove the vein. To be truly considered “fresh,” shrimp should be caught no more than 12 hours before making its way to your kitchen. Fully intact “whiskers” (also known as “antennae”), which begin to fall off as shrimp ages, is a good indicator that these shrimp have just come from the water. To shell Slip your thumb under the shell to open and gently pull the shell back, lengthwise, starting at the head end. If desired, leave the tail “feathers” attached. (The tail is decorative and can be convenient to grasp when making dishes such as fried shrimp.)
