Low Land Boil
We started having low land boils every August when our corn is on after one of Kelly's employees introduced them to us and we have had one every year since. It is not hard to do but it is really yummy! We have several people that request a low land boil every year. Here's how to do it.........
You need one larger pot(I usually use one of my canning pots). Fill about 1/2 the pot with water and add one can of "Old Bay Seasoning"(I add the whole can because I make a big batch you can add just half or less of the can it is pretty spicy stuff)......you find it in the spice isle usually on the bottom shelf. Mix the seasoning in the water. Then add red potatoes(enough to feed your family) boil until potatoes are almost done then add 3-4 cut sausages boil for about 5 more minutes then add corn on the cob and boil until corn is just about done and then add 3 pounds of shrimp and then boil until shrimp are done.....about 3-4 minutes. Time to enjoy the yummy food.
Variation: You can use crawdads fresh from the lake instead of shrimp.
