Wow, can you believe it's December already? Good grief, seems like it was just Christmas yesterday! (inside joke here!) Anyway, I don't know about you, but for me, having turkey and all those fixin's once a year is enough more me. So, we started a new tradition about 4 or 5 years ago in our house and we eat Low Country Boil. Keeping us in a southern state of mind and so super easy to make!
Low Country boil:
12 small frozen ears of corn (we get the extra, super sweet kind)
3 lbs of new red potatoes, cut into quarters
1-2 lbs shrimp (depending on your liking of it)
2 lbs smoked sausage ropes, cut into slices
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp old bay seasoning
2 tbsp kosher salt
1 gallon water
Combine water, salt, old bay, and garlic in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and continue boiling for about 15-20 minutes. Add the sausage and continue boiling for 5 more minutes. Add the frozen corn and continue boiling for another 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and boil for 3 more minutes. Drain water off and serve in bowls, in a large flat dish, or dump on a table cloth in the middle of the table for a fun free-for-all.
