BY SHAWN HARRIS

Herbs are soft, succulent plants which usually grow in the temperate zone. Until recently cooks have had to make do with very few fresh herbs, such as sage, parsley, and thyme. Nowadays you can also find fresh oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon, rosemary, and thyme. Since herbs are at their best when they are young and freshly picked, it is well worth growing your own., but picking buying fresh from your local farmer’s market or grocery will do fine. Here’s a few to learn about.

Oregano

Flavor: Earthy; balances acidic tomatoes — hence common on pizza. Parsley Great with: Lamb, beef, eggs, beans, Flavor: Peppery and fresh; curly parsley is milder than eggplant. Notes: It’s closely related to marjoram (but more pungent), so they flat-leaf Italian. Great with: Salads, aren’t classified separately. vegetables (especially potatoes), pasta. Notes: Either variety is a breath Sage freshener. Flavor: Very aromatic and Rosemary woodsy. Great Flavor: Pungent aroma and pine flavor. with: Fresh sausage, Great with: Mediterranean dishes, lamb, holiday stuffing for turkey, rich poultry, fish, breads; add sprigs or finely meats like pork, goose and duck. chopped leaves to long-cooking stews. Notes: Deep-fried sage is a lovely Notes: When grilling, sturdier stems garnish. make good skewers; branches can be a basting brush.

Thyme

Flavor: Minty and citrusy Great with: Mediterranean dishes, stews, eggs, seafood, poultry; toss sprigs into boiling water to flavor steamed rice. Notes: Strip leaves from stems by pulling through fork tines.

Tarragon

Flavor: Reminiscent of licorice. Great with: Poultry, fish, shellfish, vegetables, vinegar and eggs; indispensable in the French béarnaise sauce. Notes: Two types; French is preferred over the more bitter Russian.


Simply Grand for Mother’s Day @ ARTworks Courtesy of ARTworks Beaufort SC

May 10th in the black box theater at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, Simply Grand presents a Mother’s Day concert, with melodies, loving lyrics, and special ticket prices~ $12 for all tickets, $7 for children. The concert begins @ 7:30, surrounded by a quilt show in the gallery, artists working in their studios, and the classrooms where creativity happens. After years of performing together locally and throughout Northeast Florida, Simply Grand was organized in 2010. The nucleus of the group includes Keyboardist Kenneth Varner, Saxophonist Gregory Whittaker, and Drummer Trevor Daniels. The trio of musicians soon discovered a certain chemistry and musical affinity that led to their formation of Simply Grand, a versatile musical ensemble that has a

unique ability to shift between Contemporary Jazz, Gospel, and Blues with ease. One the band’s most notable performances occurred during the Beaufort 300 celebration in which the group played to a packed house at the Beaufort Waterfront Park. 2127 Boundary Street 29902, artworksinbeaufort.org, 843-379-2787, @ artseensc.

Summer Berries and Memories By Eric Sayers-Executive Chef Beaufort Memorial Hospital

School was finally out and I was so excited!  I didn’t know what I wanted to do but I knew the time was mine, or so I thought.  I remember sleeping soundly that night in Connecticut, windows open, a cool breeze blowing through the New England sky. I also knew that spring came in like a lion, roaring with every assault on the poor grass and dad’s garden.  I woke up the next morning after my parents went to work with a list. Ugh. Not what you want to wake up to after shaking off the dust of the third grade.  Geeze, I just slid down the slide on my tummy! Does anyone get how I endured the whistles blowing and recess restrictions? Nope, no one cares. And now I have to get up early on my vacation to help pick blueberries???  Dad had three blueberry bushes and he covered each one with some kind of fine net cloth. He also got this silly blow-up snake one time; it was supposed to keep the birds away. I liked the snake a lot; I teased many a neighbor with it but believe it or not those birds got to those bushes, even with all of dad’s protections.   I guess the lion

12 • WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM 12 • WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM

was gone in that New England weather and as the sun warmed I figured the lamb was here to stay. I did what I was told and went out in the grueling heat and endured all the birds and snakes and all the spring beasts. I picked a quart of blueberries! Amazingly some actually survived the relentless birds, they looked so plump and yummy.  I collected all that I found and put them on the table for mom and dad to see when they got home. I would love to say that mom came home, found the blueberries and whipped up a batch of biscuits and we all enjoyed fresh blueberries and fresh churned cream from our cows and the cane sugar we had in the back yard. The reality is we ate all the blueberries. Dad even mentioned how big they were and I agreed.  They were delicious and it’s amazing that nature needs no help from us.   Many, many years later, I developed this recipe. If there are any berries left that is. This simply complements the beautiful summer fruit. Serves 4 ¼ cup blueberries ¼ cup raspberries ¼ cup sliced strawberries ¼ cup blackberries 1/8 cup sugar 2 TBSP Grand Marnier (optional) 2 TBSP orange juice ¼ tsp vanilla 4 Southern Style Biscuits or Shortcakes Whipped Cream, fresh Combine the berries, sugar and orange juice, let sit for 1 hour. Add vanilla and Grand Marnier (if using). Stir and let sit for another hour. Spoon over split biscuits or shortcakes. Top with fresh whipped cream. Enjoy summer!

The St. Helena Parish Chapel of Ease, a relic of the Lowcountry’s colonial past, has beguiled and haunted visitors to St. Helena Island for more than two centuries. It was built ca. 1740 to serve planters in St. Helena Parish who lived at great distances from the parish church in Beaufort and could not regularly attend services there. The ruin is significant as a relatively intact example of mid-eighteenth century tabby construction and was added to the National Register of Historic places on Oct. 6, 1988. The church was virtually abandoned when the planters evacuated the island in the fall of 1861. During the Federal occupation of St. Helena, the church was used frequently

by several of the Northerners who had come to the island to educate and train the freedmen. It was also used as a sanctuary by

14 • WWW.EDIBLESMAG.COM

Methodist freedmen as early as 1868, but was burned by a forest fire in February 1886 and was never repaired. Much of its historic fabric, including the church walls and much of its plaster, remains. A local legend from Lowcountry lore has drawn visitors to the chapel’s ruins for decades. As the story goes a headless man is said to haunt Land’s End on St. Helena Island. According to legend, he’s a soldier who was decapitated in battle and is looking to restore his head. The apparition looks “like a little swinging lantern, swinging back and forth,” but the scientific explanation for sightings of the ghost is phosphorescence. Gnarled and majestic live oaks add to the mysterious atmosphere. Visitors to St. Helena Island can also catch spectacular sunsets by following Land’s End Road to a county dock on the Beaufort River and Inland Waterway.

PEACHES

By Morgan Schiff

With their honeyed scent and dulcet flesh, peaches are the darlings of summer stone fruit. Peaches’ natural sweetness lends itself to seasonal desserts like peach cobbler, peach pie, or even just simple peaches and cream. Perhaps because of its association with dessert, the fuzzy fruit is often overlooked as a nutritional powerhouse. Like a Southern belle, the sun-kissed peach has historically gotten more attention for looking and smelling pretty than for the substance it has to offer. Peach nutrition has been know about for centuries. They are thought to have originated in China as long as three thousand years ago. Peaches come from the stone family of fruits and have a large and pitted hard seed. The fruit of a peach has a large amount of fiber. As we all know fiber aids the digestive system tremendously, helping to prevent constipation as well as colon cancer. Some of the many other nutrients to be included in peach nutrition are niacin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus and Vitamins A,B and C. Health Benefits of Peach • Peaches help make the skin healthy and also add color to the complexion. • It has been seen that consumption of peaches helps in the removal of worms from the intestinal tract. • Being rich in Vitamin A, peaches might help prevent cancer in organs and glands with epithelial tissue. • Peaches comprise of more than 80

percent water and are a good source of dietary fiber, making them good for those trying to lose weight. • Consumption of peaches, on a regular basis, can keep your bowel movements regular and even prevent straining. • Researches have suggested that peaches have good to excellent antioxidant activity, some antimicrobial activity and good to excellent tumor growth inhibition activity. • Peaches have a small laxative effect and a powerful diuretic effect and thus, are recommended to people suffering from rheumatism and gout. • Peach flowers have sedative proprieties and are good for children who are restless, especially when boiled in water with sugar and honey. Peaches have been found to be beneficial for individuals suffering from the following ailments: Acidosis Anemia Asthma Bladder and Kidney Stones Bronchitis Constipation Dry Cough Gastritis High Blood Pressure Nephritis Poor Digestion

Many fruits have this property and if people would only replace their high calorie, high fat snack foods with fruits snacks, they would have no problem with weight gain. Select peaches at the peak of the season—May through the middle of October—and everything will be peachy keen.

GETTING AROUND THE LOWCOUNTRY It’s easy to get to beautiful Beaufort County - just a short drive from I-95 or US 17. Both roads run north-south along the east coast of the United States and connect to other interstates and major highways. Driving south on US 17, exit onto US 21 at Gardens Corner and enjoy the scenic marsh views going approximately 20 miles east into the downtown Beaufort area. Driving south on I-95, take Exit 33 at Point South and connect to US 21 for a direct route into the center of Beaufort. Driving north on I-95, take Exit 8 onto US 278 toward Hilton Head Island and directly into the Bluffton area and the southern part of Beaufort County. This route connects to SC 170, across the Broad River into the city of Beaufort in the northern part of the county.
