INTRODUCTION Food is defined as, ‘any nutritious substance that people ... eat or drink ... in order to maintain life and growth’. We, the South Carolina Specialty Food Association, believe that food is more than just a basic necessity. Food should be an experience – like waiting in a line that stretches out of the door to order barbecue, retrieving your sauce selection from an antique piano-turned-sauce-bar, and being served homemade corn pudding so good it’s all you dream about for the next week. Food is cultural – like preserving generations-old family buttermilk biscuit recipes that are critically acclaimed by Oprah herself. Food is a way to be creative – from the bakers and cooks that dream up the recipes to the gourmands that put the same delectable, tangy sauce on anything and everything from seafood, to fries, or even on plain-old crackers for a little kick. This catalog is a celebration of South Carolina’s unique food producers from across the Palmetto State. From stone-ground grits to handcrafted small-batch ice cream, pimento cheese, and every lip-lickin’ sauce flavor in between, members of the S.C. Specialty Food Association are creative and hard-working entrepreneurs that can cure any craving. Their specialty food products make great gifts for that special foodie in your life, enhance raffle baskets or storefront displays, and should be sampled by every member of the family to see what all the fuss is about.

C a r o h t l u

For over 20 years the South Carolina Specialty Food Association has promoted local, artisan food products, serving its 150+ members through marketing programs, promotional campaigns, and

technical assistance to ensure the success of South Carolina’s most creative entrepreneurs.

The Tale of the Benne Wafer

Unique to the Lowcountry since Colonial times, Benne (the Bantu-word for sesame) was brought to the southern United States by slaves from West Africa. Sesame is a versatile seed that has a nutty, sweet aroma with a milk-like, buttery taste. When toasted, its flavor intensifies, yielding an almost almond or peanut butter-like flavor. The Benne Wafer is a thin cookie, made with tasty toasted sesame. The Bantu believe eating these cookies brings good luck, and so do we! Courtesy of Olde Colony Bakery, oldecolonybakery.com

MUSTARD: “Carolina Gold” dominates South Carolina’s “Mustard Belt”, where pork is sauced with an intense concoction of yellow mustard, vinegar, and seasonings. A tangy mustard sauce compliments sweet, smoky pulled pork well.

TC

KETCHUP: Whereas vinegar-based sauces are more of a basting liquid, BBQ sauce made with ketchup is a thick, sweet flavor that often coats the smoky end product. It is heavy, hearty, and just as important to any BBQ meal as the meat it rests on.

TO

TOMATO: Tomato-based BBQ sauce has a sweet and sour flavor and a thin liquid consistency. It gets its sweetness from the tomato, a twang from the vinegar, and sometimes a bite from the pepper added to it.

VINEGAR + PEPPER: White or cider vinegar paired with red pepper flakes creates a tangy, spicy taste. As the first BBQ baste, it is BBQ’s most basic, yet savory condiment.

A prize winning sauce that has received praises from backyard cookers, Master BBQ judges, and competition cook teams alike. With its sweet tang, light peppery finish, and just a hint of citrus, Smokin’ Coals has impressed cooks throughout the South where barbecue is not just a food, it’s a way of life.

A tomato and vinegar-based sauce whose number one ingredient is honey. Sweetness to start and followed by a Texas Pete bite at the end, this sauce contains no alcohol despite what its name suggests, but ensures just as much fun.

UNCLE ALBERT'S BARBEQUE SAUCE

WILLIE'S HOG DUST

Darlington, SC

Sumter, SC

www.unclealbertsbbqauce.com info@unclealbertsbbqsauce.com 843-393-2989 For the past 35 years, Uncle Albert has been working towards the perfect barbecue sauce. We finally hit the right formula - a mix of a little of this and that, giving our sauce a perfect balance of not too sweet and not too spicy. One taste of Uncle Albert’s Famous BBQ Sauce and you’re hooked - for good.

www.willieshogdust.com william.miller@williesrubbins.com 888-464-3878 My passion for BBQ and grilling can be traced back to my college years when I would grill out on my dorm’s sidewalk. I could not find a rub that I really liked, so after years of mixing different rubs and sauces to get the formula just right, Willie’s Hog Dust was born.

Babyback Pork Ribs [Smoker] Wash ribs and remove membrane on underside. Lightly coat ribs with olive oil front and back. Generously apply Willie's Hog Dust® on both sides and place top down on smoker. Smoke at approximately 220 degrees for 2 hours and turn rack right side up. Continue smoking for an additional 1.5 hours or until done. (Please remember to add a water source to your smoker. This will keep the ribs moist.)

MOORE HIMALAYAN SALT Lugoff, SC www.moorehimalayansalt.com sp1ceguy@yahoo.com 803-206-2062 Moore Foods is a family owned and operated business that has had a successful track record of distributing spices throughout SC and Georgia since 2000. Now our main focus is on our Himalayan Salt products.

Toasted Brussel Sprouts with Smoked Sea Salt INGREDIENTS 1 cup brussel sprouts 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon Smoked Sea Salt 1-2 tablespoons water

DIRECTIONS Wash brussel sprouts and trim off ends. Cut brussel sprouts lengthwise. Drizzle olive oil in a cast iron or non-stick pan. Sprinkle the smoked sea salt directly onto the oiled pan. Place brussel sprouts with the cut side down in the pan, rub them around a bit so they get coated with oil and salt on the cut side. Heat on high without stirring until they begin to toast and get toasted and browned on the bottom. Add water to the pan to steam the brussels. Once water is evaporated and brussel sprouts are at the desired softness, they are finished. Serve hot or chill and add to your favorite salad. Recipe courtesy of Bulls Bay Saltworks

Use Specialty Food Wedding Favors

According to The Knot, the nation’s largest resource for wedding news and inspiration, edible wedding favors are a great (and practical) way to show your guests that you appreciate their support and attendance. Edible wedding favors can often be customized with colors and labels to match your wedding theme and personality as a couple.

If you have a destination wedding, or a wedding with a lot of out-of-town guests, food for favors means they can enjoy them right away and not have to worry about packing another thing into their suitcase.

South Carolina has a rich food history, and incorporating that into your wedding is one way to tell the story of who you are together. Treat your guests to a SC specialty food that you both love! Souce: The Knot, theknot.com 39

CERTIFIED SOUTH CAROLINA The Certified South Carolina program is a cooperative effort with specialty food producers, farmers, wholesalers, retailers, restaurants, institutions and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) to brand and promote South Carolina agricultural products. Certified SC makes it easy to find fresher, tastier options grown right here in South Carolina all while supporting local farmers and our state’s economy. Under the leadership of SC Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers, SCDA established the Certified South Carolina branding program to help consumers easily identify and purchase South Carolina products while increasing market opportunities for value-added food producers and farmers from across the Palmetto state. Research indicates that consumers are more likely to purchase products from a brand they trust. An addition of the Certified SC Product logo to any label sends a message to the consumer that what they’re buying is produced in their home state and meets strenuous standards for food safety and quality. The Certified SC program is free to join and all specialty food producers, farmers, and food manufacturers are eligible to apply. Upon approval, members will be listed on the Certified SC website, gain access to use of the logo and the ability to take advantage of the multi-media advertising campaign. For more information about this program, please visit our website at certifiedscgrown.com.

For information and membership inquiries, contact: Ansley Turnblad, Brand Coordinator South Carolina Department of Agriculture PO Box 11280 • Columbia, SC 29211 803-734-2207 aturnblad@scda.sc.gov
