Carolina Cider Company

Review by: Jane & Michael Stern

Looking to slake thirst on the way to Parris Island, we stopped in the Carolina Cider Company and drank ourselves silly. Not on anything alcoholic, mind you, but on the squeezin’s of Muscadine grapes to be sure, as well as of apples, cherries, and peaches. This shop by the side of the road specializes in juices made from local fruits … as well as dozens of other products that reflect the Lowcountry’s harvest.

It’s a small place, shelves and tables crowded with jellies and jams, fruit syrups, pickled okra and hot chow chow, black-eyed pea relish, and praline mustard glaze. Other available groceries include she-crab soup by the can, grits and rice by the half-pound bag, boxes of pecans, and bags of benne wafers. Two kinds of boiled peanuts are available — warm, of course — for snacking right away: regular and Cajun-spiced.

Guests are invited to sip complimentary little cups of whichever ciders they think they might like. If you are traveling light, there’s a mail-order brochure available so that any of these regional treats can be ordered and shipped home.

We discovered this place on a drive from Charleston To Savannah a few years ago and we always make a special trip to the Carolina Cider Company on our yearly visit to Charleston.

The ciders are tasty, but it’s the jams, jellies, butters and conserves that bring us back. The Sweet Potato Pie butter is just so good, but the Cherry Butter is what scores raves. We buy extras for Christmas gifts and to keep on the shelf. Other favorites are Apple Pie Jelly, (with chunks of apples and raisins with cinnamon and a touch of clove) Mixed Berry Jam and Blueberry Jam.

The jams and jellies all have that home made taste to them and rate above imports from gourmet shops.
