Daufuskie Island’s favorite storytelling son, Sportsman Roger Pinckney
speaks of the return of fall shrimp season on his Radio Free Daufuskie podcast with kudos to Burton Saul’s CityTrex Blog Site. Listen to just what it is that fall means to all the Lowcountry gourmands that like to roll their own after waiting on the fall cast net shrimp season to get underway. Or if you are pressed for time pick 'em fresh at “four dollars a pound without the heads at the county dock, cheaper than you pay for bacon“ as Roger points out.
In this episode our quintessential low country river rat himself
talks about the fresh bounty to be had in the early part of this fall shrimp season of autumn 2010 and some tasty Down South Breakfast Fixings that make for some memorable dining experiences. Band Leader Phil Harris wrote about it and Texas Swing Legend, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys sang about it but renowned Coastal Carolina Author Pinckney not only lives the good old boy southern lifestyle, he eats it all up in a manner of speaking.
As we like to keep telling you here at Savannah Getaways, make it a point to hop the ferryboat out of Hilton Head Island over to Daufuskie Island on your next trip to lowcountry Savannah.
And don’t forget your cooler so you can stock up on the freshly caught shrimp at the Farmer’s Market beside Marshside Mama’s on the Hilton Head side of the island.
