Have a hankerin' for scuppernong jelly or watermelon rind pickles? How about a bag of stone-ground grits or a 12-pack of Cheerwine? Look no further than Matt and Ted's much-celebrated Lee Bros. Boiled Peanuts Catalogue (BoiledPeanuts.com). What began more than a decade ago as a way for displaced (read: hungry) Southerners to get their hot little hands on fresh boiled peanuts has turned into a superb general store for some of our region's most prized culinary delicacies. While shopping, be sure to order one of their trendy T-shirts or an "I Brake For Boiled Peanuts" bumper sticker ("For safety's sake," say the brothers). You can also purchase a copy of their best-selling cookbook.
"Charleston Cheer" is from the December 2007 issue of Southern Living.
