Updated COVID-19 Reminders – Masks are now optional for shoppers – We are still following recommended safety protocols
The Pickens County community level has remained low, but the rate of transmission is increasing. Based on the current CDC and SC DHEC guidelines, masks are still optional for shoppers. Day managers will decide whether volunteer workers will wear masks on their shifts. We are still following all of the recommended CDC guidelines and SC DHEC guidelines for keeping people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we will reinstate the mask policy if the transmission rate increases again.
We ask you to do the following: If you are feeling sick at all (fever or not), Please do not come into the store. If you know you have been exposed to COVID-19, DO NOT come into the store. The CDC guidelines call for staying home for at least 5 days after you’ve been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19. See this link for more information on what to do if you contract COVID: What to Do If You Are Sick | CDC

1 ½ lbs Chinese cabbage
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
4 dried red chilies de-seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons cooking wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce or more if needed
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1-2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
2 scallions chopped
salt to taste
In a wok over high heat, add the oil. Once hot, add the garlic and chili, reduce the heat to medium, and stir-fry for a minute. Do not let the garlic burn.
Add the cabbage, wine, soy sauce, sugar, and water.
Increase the heat to high, cover the wok and let the cabbage cook for 1-2 minutes.
Uncover the wok and stir in the vinegar, scallions, and salt to taste. The cabbage should be wilted, but still slightly crunchy and caramelized. Serve hot and enjoy!
