Nothing Says The South, Like BBQ and Benne
Had some tasty food treats down in Charleston this weekend, here’s the scoop~
Jim ‘N Nicks BBQ Charleston SC
I am not sure how to feel about these cheese biscuits, is this a cupcake or a biscuit… not exactly sure, but its sweet and savory good.
I just love it when you have a meal and “everything” is just awesome. The brisket was smokey and tender, the potato salad had just the right amount of mustard and pickles and the fried green tomatoes were flavorful and grease-less. My goodness, now I’m hungry.
Benne Wafers, Charleston Market
I’m eating these as I write this post.
Unique to Charleston since Colonial times, Benne (the Bantu word for sesame) was brought to America from East Africa in the 17th century during the slave trade era.
