Low Country Boil

There are so many things that I was ignorant of when I first moved down to Register with Jeramy in August 2007. This meal, typical of the South Carolina-Georgia coast land, was one of them. (Also pictured Grandma Gladys' Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese.) Each time I've enjoyed this meal, it's been with a very large crowd. Here's the recipe printed on the back of the sausage box:

Crab boil - 1.5 tsp per quart

10 medium new potatoes, quartered

5 Roger Wood Sausage links (1.5 pounds)

5 ears of corn

3 pounds of shrimp (they usually get medium sized)

Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all the ingredients and add the crab boil. (You need a gigantic pot!) When the pot begins to boil add the potatoes. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes.

Add corn and cook for three minutes. Then add the sausage and cook seven more minutes. Add shrimp, cooking for only 2-3 minutes. Drain and serve hot.
