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

Roasted Cabbage with Garlic & Olive Oil
These roasted cabbage wedges are so flavorful! Roasting cabbage is a game-changer, convincing even picky eaters that it’s worth a try.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 40 mins
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Vered DeLeeuw
▢Olive oil spray
▢1 large green cabbage (2 lbs before trimming)
▢1 teaspoon kosher salt
▢1 teaspoon garlic powder
▢½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and generously spray it with olive oil. Remove the cabbage’s damaged outer leaves. Cut it in half, then into wedges as shown in the video. Leave the core in – there’s no need to cut it out, and if you do, the wedges will fall apart.
Rinse the cabbage wedges, then carefully dry them using paper towels.
Place the wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Generously spray their tops with olive oil. Season with kosher salt, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
Roast the cabbage wedges until golden brown and fork-tender, 25-30 minutes. Serve immediately.
To prep the cabbage, remove the outer leaves, cut the cabbage into wedges, and rinse them under running water. This will help get rid of any insects hiding inside the cabbage. Be sure to dry the wedges before baking them.
