Summer Fun: Low Country Boil

For years we shared memories with our family and friends over a boiling pot of heaven called a "Low Country Boil" aromatic combination of succulent Shrimp, Andouille Sausage, small red potatoes, and sweet summer corn in a broth of Old Bay Seasoning, lemons and a few quartered Vidalia onions...mmmhmm! You can make your own memories this weekend!  I am sharing the recipe and J'Aime Vintage is celebrating the tradition....just visit my booth for all the decor and I have even planned the menu for you!!


Low Country Boil for 6

1 large can Old Bay Seasoning
4 Lemons
4 quartered Vidalia Onions
1/8 cup Salt
3 gallons water (or more to cover all ingredients)

3 lbs. Shrimp
2 lbs. Andouille Sausage
3 lbs. small Red Potatoes (scrubbed)
6 ears Sweet Corn (shucked)

Your favorite:
Cole Slaw
Sweet Corn Bread
and a Blackberry Cobbler with
Homemade Ice Cream, of course!!

Don't forget the Sweet Tea!!

Bring the water, and salt to a boil....(we use an outdoor pot because we think this is the REAL use for that Turkey Fryer, though they are good!!). Add the Old Bay, Lemons, Onions, and Potatoes, cook until the potatoes are almost tender, add the Sausage for 15 minutes, then the Corn for another 10, finish off with the Shrimp for 3 minutes and remove from the be careful....drain the mixture and pour the whole thing out on a table covered thick with newspapers....DIG IN!!!

All of the items pictured are available this month at J'Aime Vintaje located in the front window of the Harpeth Antique Mall or by contacting me at .....

Thanks for stopping by and have an inspired day!!
