Lobster season has arrived!!

Lobster Season has begun Happy Dance!!!!
 after a slow start to the season lobsters have arrived , prices are down &

I love living where the fishermen are generous 
get your water boiling 
then be brave....... cut those rubber bands right off
 then head first into the boiling water

boil in batches unless you have a high powered cooker
you don't want the water to take forever to return to a boil
yummmm, pretty bright red shells
means time to dig in

if your lucky enough to have leftover lobster
make lobster mac &cheese, lobster salad, lobster bisque

Using a 12-14 quart kettle, boil 6" of water  

Drop lobsters into kettle head first, Let return to a boil. Reduce to medium heat. 
Boil    12 minutes for a 1 pound lobster

           15-18 minutes for a 1 1/2 pound lobster

           20-22 minutes for a 2 pound lobster
