Frogmore is a SC low country soup using potatoes, corn, shrimp and sausage. You get the water boiling and add the ingredients then dump it out on newspaper and eat with your hands. Anyone ever tried it.
We make a dish with potatoes, onions and sausage then add cabbage at the end eat it with cornbread. Sho is good.
Sounds like SOUP is a misnomer! I've never eaten soup off a newspaper. Sounds more like a crawfish or crab boil or a clam bake type of a cooking method. Steamed or boiled and then drained and dumped on newspaper. Correct?
4 pounds small red potatoes
5 quarts water
1 (3-ounce) bag of crab boil seasoning
4 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
2 pounds kielbasa or hot smoked link sausage, cut into 1½-inch pieces
6 ears of corn, halved
4 pounds large fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined optional
Add potatoes to large pot, then add 5 quarts water and seasonings. Cover pot and heat to a rolling boil; cook 5 minutes. Add sausage and corn, and return to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Add shrimp to stockpot; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Having a removable drain basket only makes cooking easier. Drain
. Serve with cocktail sauce. Serves 12. (Adapted from
