- THE STORY
Not your 'nawlins creole!
This luscious simmer sauce hails from a 50 year old South Carolina family recipe and uses the bounty of the surrounding marshlands to create an unforgettable culinary experience. Consisting of a different balance of spicy and sweet from other creole sauces, it is loaded with roughly chopped onions, bell peppers and tomatoes with a signature blend of spices. You'll love it served over stone-ground grits or rice. Add shrimp, chicken, sausage or vegetables for a hearty, satisfying meal.
For almost five decades, the Luquire family has been serving up some of the tastiest creole on the Carolina coast. Not to be confused with the creole sauces that pepper the state of Louisiana, Carolina Creole hails from Georgetown, South Carolina, where the family has been shrimping and fishing for generations.
The rich and vibrant sauce is a unique recipe that has been handed down in the family by word of mouth. The matriarch, Josephine "Jo" Luquire, first crafted the recipe almost 50 years ago when the family moved to the small seaside town of Georgetown. Since then, the Luquires have focused their kitchen around using the plentiful bounty of the surrounding marshes, fields, waterways and storied rice plantations.
