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.
