Its been a long time since I posted and I really need to update this site with some new tools.  I am trying out one at the moment using Live Writer to update my articles.  In theory I should be able to add pictures and such much easier with this.

Testing Red Text!

Cocktail Sauce Recipe to go with your Frogmore Stew
By host @ 8:01 PM :: 12452 Views :: 7 Comments :: Article Rating :: Recipes

Cocktail sauce is the standard condiment for all seafood.  A very basic recipe but I found I needed to add it to my site to go along with my Frogmore Stew recipe.

Ingredients:
Ketchup (about a quarter of a bottle)
Horseradish Sauce (found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store usually near the cheese. 2-4 Tablespoons)
Worchester Sauce (1 teaspoon)
Lemon Juice (1 teaspoon)

Now this is a very subjective recipe in that many people like their sauce different ways.  I personally like a hot/spicy version.  This is all controlled by the amount of horseradish sauce.

Take a small salad bowl and fill half way with your ketchup.  Now take 2 table spoons of horseradish sauce and mix in the ketchup.  Add one tea spoon of Worchester sauce and a about the same of lemon juice.  Stir and serve.  Add more or less horseradish for desired heat.  I probably would use 3-4 table spoons in a small bowl.

Also, try and make this 20 minutes before serving and let stand at room temperature.  This seems to make the taste more bold.   Do not refrigerate the sauce as the cold sauce is not good on your seafood.

Whats up with this Color Scheme?
By host @ 4:47 PM :: 3671 Views :: 2 Comments :: Article Rating :: Clemson, Website

I just realized that many people that stop by this site are probably wondering if I am color blind.  :)  But the orange and purple does have some significance... they are the school colors of Clemson University where I went to school and got a BS in Biological Sciences.  I am a big fan of their football (american style) team the Clemson Tigers.  If you get a chance check out some of the history of Death Valley (the stadium where they play) it is pretty interesting.  It is one of the loudest stadiums in the world when its filled on Saturday afternoons.  Another interesting fact is that the Tigers make one of the most unique entrances in college football or as a famous sports caster tagged it "the most exciting 25 secs in college football."  You can read more about it at Wikipedia.

Also, check out Clesmon's site to see what its all about.

Frogmore Stew, Low Country Boil, Beaufort Boil, call it good eating...
By host @ 7:31 PM :: 41135 Views :: 16 Comments :: Article Rating :: Recipes

Frogmore Stew was something I came across about 7 years ago.  At the time I was helping someone make a batch for a Super Bowl Party and here I am making a web page about it.  Frogmore is called a few different names... Beaufort Boil, Low Country Boil, Crab Boil and of course my favorite Frogmore Stew.  The recipe that I learned from has been modified somewhat over the years from my experiences and suggestions from some of the highest coinsurers of Frogmore Stew in South Carolina.  Normally, the stew is made for a fairly large group of people (15-30).  With my recipe you can feed roughly 25 people with a few heavy eaters in the crowd.  So, lets get down to the good stuff and see what is in the stew.

Before you start you will need a very, very large pot (I am guessing the pot I have is around 10 gallons) and a propane burner.  If you don't have a very large pot you will need two pots and have to divide the stuff up equally between the two.  Next, fill the pot up with water just under half way straight from the spigot (not trough the hose).  Some people at this point would say pour in some beers too but to me that is a waste of a perfectly good beer because I have yet to notice a difference in the taste when making a large amount of Stew as this recipe calls for.   Next, take your pot to your burner and get it started heating up to boiling.  While waiting pour in two of the Old Bay Seasonings, the Whole Peppercorns, the Zataran's and the Cider Vinegar.  Let all that get to a good boil. The way you know you got the spices and things right is by breathing in over the pot and see if it almost takes you breath.  If it does you got the spices right.  If not add more spices.  The first thing you do is cook crab legs. Most Crab legs you get all you need to do is boil them for about 5-7 minutes and they are ready.  Once you are finished cooking the crab legs take an older cooler and dump the crab legs in there and they will stay hot until the stew is ready, After you get all the crab legs cooked and out of the pot add the potatoes. Cook for about 10 minutes. Once the potatoes are semi-soft throw in the Sausage again let cook for about 5 minutes and then add the onions. Once it starts boiling again add the corn. Now let it boil for a few minutes.  Now, for the shrimp the key is to not over cook them.  Add all the shrimp to the pot with it boiling and then let them pink up just a little and cut the flame off.  Put the lid on the shrimp will keep cooking until you are ready to serve which for me happens about 2-3 minutes after I cut off the burner. Make sure the shrimp are a good pink and separate easily from the shell.

Don't forget the cocktail sauce. And always make your own, it is so much better.

Frogmore Stew Recipe

Ingredients
2 Cans of Old Bay Seasoning
1 Can of Zatarn's Cajun Seasoning or some spice to add some heat.
50 or more whole black peppercorns
1 Qt. Apple Cider Vinegar
10 lb bag of Potatoes
10 Turkey Smoked Sausages
5 lb bag of Onions
36 Small Ears of Frozen Corn
10 lb of Shrimp
20-30 lbs of Crab Legs (if not get more shrimp)

Cut up the potatoes and onions in quarters.

Once you got everything cooked lay down some newspaper and just dump the contents of the pot (after draining) onto the table and enjoy.  And that is Frogmore Stew according to Matt Edwards.

I had one ME come in from Spanish Fork, UT last night.  Bringing the count up to 82.

Also, this is good in another way because all the gmail addresses that I tired to get back a year ago you find out those people who got them before you.  Same with Hotmail, etc.  (Todays ME had one e-mail address I tried to get).  But, its nice to know that the people who actually get these e-mail addresses are Matt Edwards and not some name squatters.  So chances are if you try to get a e-mail adress based off Matt Edwards and its taken that person has been here.
