Frogmore Stew

On Monday evening Tom cooked and served Frogmore Stew for our supper. There were fifteen of us and we had lots leftover, even though we ate until we were stuffed. We ate it in the traditional way - with our hands! And there was very little clean-up to do afterwards. We simply rolled up the newspapers with the cans, cobs and shrimp shells and threw them in the trash.

Frogmore Stew (Tom's way)
Potatoes, washed and cut in half
Corn on the cob, shucked and cut in half
Kielbasa sausage
Crab legs
crab boil

(Use in quantities appropriate to the number of people to feed.) In large pot, boil potatoes for 20 minutes. Add sausage and crab legs and boil for 15 more minutes. Add crab boil and shrimp and cook for 10 more minutes. Add corn and cook for 5 more minutes. Drain off water, dump food on newspaper-covered table and eat. Napkins optional.

When I make it I add onions and bell peppers and omit the crabs.

One of our favorite summer time dinners

the pots and *fire* are always a challenge. Were Tom and Karin cooking outside, too?

They used 2 pots and cooked inside, Dana. But Tom would really like a large cast iron pot or cauldron and cook it over a fire pit!

It's a lot like a crawfish boil, except for the sausage. Wish I could have been there to help with the leftovers.
