Gullah Gourmet

Lesson Overview

When enslaved Africans came to the coast of South Carolina they brought many foods with them that have become traditional Southern favorites. They include peanuts, sweet potatoes,   okra, black-eyed peas, collard greens and sesame seeds. Inviting your students to create and eat foods made from these healthy Gullah ingredients will give them  a real “taste” of the culture. We have included two recipes. This is a no-cooking recipe for young students.These treats are nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare.
