This is for large boils, 30-40 lb sacks in a big pot. I assume smaller amounts is similar, maybe less time soaking. Also depending on your seasoning the soak time may be different, since the soak controls the seasoning (longer=more seasoned).

Bring water to a boil. Add some lemons and their juice and quartered onions. Parboil potatoes for 5-7 minutes then remove. Add seasoningóusually this is sold as a packaged mix, but itís generally some mixture of salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, celery salt, cayenne pepper, and white pepper. Or liquid boil mix.

Add crawfish, bring back to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Sausage and corn can go in now, and potatoes back in. Let it sit covered for 20-30 minutes, tasting for seasoning along the way. As it soaks it gets spicier and water fills the shells. Keep in mind same with potatoesólonger soak means spicier potatoes, so taste those as you go too for doneness and hotness. Generally once they sink again theyíre getting close.

The rest of the recipe is way too rich for my blood, but this part:

Hosting a Mardi Gras dinner this weekend and figured I'd post my recipe for the chicken and sausage jambalaya I always make. I am, sadly, not cajun/creole, but this is good! It consistently gets high marks from Louisiana folk. The recipe is adapted from John Besh's.

Optional Smoky Chicken Stock
This is a way to enrich your standard storebought chicken stock with some great smoky flavor and gelatin. It's particularly good as a base for white beans too.

1. Get some storebought chicken stock
2. Get one of those smoked turkey wings (or legs work fine to)
3. Throw the wing in the stock and simmer for a couple hours or pressure cook it or something
4. The meat usually comes out a bit tough, without a lot of flavor. Give your pet a treat, or throw it in something, I don't know.
Is something I need to put in my back pocket, especially if smoked wings go on sale/clearance.

I use the smoked/fried thanksgiving turkey carcass for stock every year, itís some deeply flavored stock. Canít use it for much else but chicken/turkey gumbo really, but man does it work for those.

How many Astartes do you know that roll like this?


I am going to be in New Orleans (visiting from Australia), on Memorial Day and desperately want to go to a local's barbecue/party or whatever. Is anyone stupid enough to accommodate me? I won't have the facilities to prepare food but can bring booze.

If you were coming to Houston I could accommodate but sadly that's about a 5 hour drive. Plus an entirely different type of party/bbq.

Just so you know, itís not called Memorial Day anywhere else in the world because for the rest of us that happens in November.


Oops, this is why I shoulnd't post when I'm sleep deprived, I thought I read it as saying you were going from New Orleans to Australia... Apologies.

Ah, crap timing. Will probably be there the week after.

LAN might work, but in theory the good cooks should be here.

Looking through the Picayune cookbook again and man, I REALLY wish there was a searchable easy-to-read Kindle version of this thing. I think Amazon used to have an updated version, but itís out of print and doesnít have a Kindle edition.

So many awesome looking recipes, but itís so drat dense and tough to read, at least for me

Iím making the orange pie on page 273 right now. Will post a trip report when itís cooked and chilled and ready to eat.

I used a Keebler graham cracker pie crust instead of the crust recipe in the book. Next time I think Iím gonna use the crust recipe with some chocolate added, plus maybe some chocolate in the meringue if I can get that to work.

poo poo I almost forgot about this.



Itís delicious. Whenever I do it again Iím gonna tweak the custard to make it a little more sherbert-y. I might also replace the meringue with some sort of whipped cream topping since Iím not big on meringue.

Anyone itt been to I think it was Lee's outside of Bunkie, LA? Their supposed to be known for their ham sandwiches but they always did meringue pies also that were the poo poo. We used to go there all the time when I was really little. Been almost 22 years since I've been. Not sure if they are even open anymore.

Anyways, your pie reminds me quite a bit of that for some reason.

Amazon says this is the version I have. The pages are all old photocopies of the physical version, thereís no hyperlinks, and itís not searchable.
