Explore the Roots of Memorial Day with Decoration Day – Black-Owned Lowcountry Food Guide

Explore the Roots of Memorial Day with Decoration Day – Black-Owned Lowcountry Food Guide

On the last Monday of May, many of us will be surrounded by close friends and family and showing respect by honoring the military personnel that is or were in our lives. We may create a celebratory event for the ones that are on active duty while still paying respect for those who have served our country. Memorial Day has deep roots with the Lowcountry community and its original roots are Decoration Day.

With this being said, as a Black Southern Belle, it is important that we highlight Black-Owned food products to help your Memorial Day festivities go over well with your guests and to pay homage to Decoration Day. Below are 5 food-products based in the Low Country that you can pick up if you are prepping early. 

Bowman Vineyards

Located in Round O, South Carolina; which is a part of Colleton County, Bowman Vineyards has been in the Bownman and Henderson family for over 10 years. Bowman Vineyards harvests several varieties of muscadines on the Oakman Branch Road farm land and wine is produced and bottled on the site of the Vineyard.  Their hearty white, red, and blush wines will pair grealty with your Memorial Day meal choices. 

Taste of Satira
Whether it’s the Gullah Geechee spices or crab boil blend of spices, the Taste of Satira has the perfect blend of spices for your food preferences needs. Created by Pamela D. Jones, The Taste of Satira gives us, Black Southern Belles, the opportunity to appreciate the taste of Gullah Geechee Cuisines. As a young teen, Jones was very hands on when it came down to cooking and is why her seasonings are so flavorful and appetizing. If you want true authentic tasting dishes this Memorial Day check out Taste of Satria. 

Lilly’s of Charleston

“Finger-Leek-en,” “Low Country Loco,” and “Hissy Fit” are just a few rubs, spices, and sauces you can enjoy when purchasing from Lilly’s of Charleston. As one of the finest and authentic flavor pallets in the South, many purchase these items to place on their chicken, ribs, oysters, shrimps or anything they want to taste amazing. Ensure your Memorial Day dishes are well seasoned and cooked with Southern flare by getting these packs of flavor from Lilly’s of Charleston. 

Carolimas Cooking Products

For any event, sweets are always my favorite and this Memorial Day, sweets should be on your list as well. If you are interested in Charleston’s famous dessert ,“Charleston Chewies,” or have a taste for Key Lime Poundcakes,  or Red Velvet Cheesecake brownies, then Carolimas has the food products for you. This woman-owned business also offers the Party Food 101 E Book to help you find some more dishes to include at your next event.
