Gullah Luv ’n Uddah T’ings
Pawley’s Island Hammock Shops
In December, I visited the Ultimate Gullah shop in Conway and left with what would turn out to be the most amazing souvenir I’ve ever purchased. In addition to a fabulous Gullah cookbook, I also snagged a container of Gullah Luv seasoning. I quickly began a series of culinary experiments with sensational results. When I returned to Myrtle Beach in August, my schedule did not allow for a drive to Conway and I was disheartened that I wouldn’t be able to replenish my stash of seasoning (that was down to its very last pinch).
Our adventures did, however, take us to the Pawley’s Island Hammock Shops. After strolling through a series of enchanting storefronts, we happened across Carolina Gourmet at Pawleys and decided to check it out. Along with a host of kitchen gadgets, Carolina Gold rice, locally made chocolate, and homemade jams, we discovered a section devoted to Gullah products. Alongside pre-made bags of ingredients for shrimp and grits, gumbo, and jambalaya, the shop also carried my prized Gullah Luv seasoning. Bingo!
I snagged a container, as well as a bag of jambalaya and a packet of southern grill seasoning. You will not regret stopping in to grab a bottle (or three) for yourself.
