    Shawn C's Note:

    In the Charleston tradition and talltales says that this old favorite of the lowcountry is the wife of Hoppin John and her version of his dish with the charleston flavor of shrimp kicked in. It is a one pot meal that we all can appreciate. I prefer a red or orange bell pepper to give additional color

      Good stuff - I love this kind of food! I added one of our local seasonings - Gullah Luv - in place of the cayenne pepper - but everything else was just as written. Yums!
