Low Country Boil

Rarely eaten by a single person or even a single family, the South Carolina Low Country Boil is a dish best cooked in great quantity and enjoyed by a large group of people. It is shrimp, corn on the cob, lengths of sausage, and red potatoes all boiled together in a big pot along with a hail of peppery seasoning that can can be mild or hot. To a large degree, the Low Country Boil defies knife and fork: the cooked shrimp demand to be extracted from their shells and corn on the cob is surely finger food. Having hoisted those with their hands, even polite eaters tend to pick up pieces of sausage and potato, forgoing fastidious manners.
