Charleston red rice

Charleston Red Rice or Savannah Red Rice is a South Carolina, known simply as Red Rice by natives of the region.

This traditional meal was brought over to the U.S. by enslaved Africans originating from the West Coast of Africa. This cultural food way is almost always synonymous with the Gullah/Geechee people and heritage that are still prevalent throughout the coastal regions of SC and GA. The main component of the dish consists of the cooking of white rice with crushed tomatoes instead of water and small bits of bacon or smoked pork sausage. Celery, bell peppers, and onions are the traditional vegetables used for seasoning. There is a distinctive similarity in the making of Red Rice and Jollof Rice, a rice still prepared by Africans from the West coast of Africa, thus one can make inference of how it first came to be in the U.S.
