Lowcountry Boil History

Lowcountry boil traces its origins back to the Gullah culture of the South Carolina Lowcountry, where seafood was plentiful, and communal gatherings were a way of life.

How to Make a Lowcountry Boil

Making a Lowcountry Boil is as straightforward as it gets:

    • Start by filling a large stockpot with water and bringing it to a boil.
    •  Add the seasoning blend to the water, adjusting the amount to suit your taste preferences. We recommend 3 ⅓ tablespoons of seasoning per gallon of water, which is around ½ cup for a 7-gallon stockpot.
    • Toss in the potatoes and sausage, and let the water return to a boil and cook until the ingredients are tender, which should be about 15 mins.
    • Add the corn to the pot, and after 5 minutes, follow it up with the seafood. Cook until the shrimp are pink (2-4 mins) and the crab (6-10 mins or heated through for pre-cooked crab) or crawfish (5 mins) are cooked through.
    • Once everything is cooked, drain the pot and transfer the contents to a large serving platter or table lined with newspaper.
    • Serve the Lowcountry boil with plenty of melted butter, cocktail sauce, and hot sauce on the side for dipping.
