December 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #196: A Lobster Pot Stand-In

Tip of the Week

Letís face it. How often do you cook live lobster? Unless itís something you do on a regular basis, you donít need a lobster pot. Instead, just commandeer a large pot thatís able to accommodate lots of water for boiling. You will need about 2 Ĺ quarts of water per lobster, so 20 quarts is perfect for a family of four. If you prefer steamed lobster, simply fill with 2 inches of generously salted water, and add the lobsters one at time. While a steamer rack that fits the pot is helpful, itís not necessary. When youíre not using the stockpot for lobster, itís great for boiling fresh corn on the cob, cooking for a crowd or preparing large batches of soup to freeze for future consumption.
