South Carolina Information + recipe

The state of South Carolina was settled by the English and the eighth state to ratify the U.S. constitution in 1788. With its economy coming largely from agriculture because of the states fertile soil the issue became one of having enough man power. Thus opening the door for slave trade from Africa

Cheap labor would help maximize the profit the large plantation owners would receive. Just shy of 100 years after ratifying the constitution the state would secede from the union in 1861. South Carolina would be the place that shots from the civil war would ring out. However the darkness of the states history the beauty still rang out.

Myrtle Beach South Carolina is one place that was developed as a destination to relax and soak up the sun. Natives of South Carolina include Chubby Checker, Dizzy Gillespie, Boxer Joe Frazier, and politician Jesse Jackson. Along with the great music, history and wonderful beaches the food from South Carolina is amazing. Just take a look at the recipe I shared 

  • 12 Large Red New Potatoes, washed and quartered (or halved, depending on the size, or the equivalent if using smaller potatoes)
  • 6 Smoked Sausage Links – approx. 4-inch links, cut into a little larger than bite-size pieces
  • 6 Ears Fresh Corn, each broken in half
  • 3 Pounds Fresh Jumbo Shrimp, unpeeled (plus any other seafood you like)
  1. Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients when full.
  2. Add the Crab Boil, or other seasoning, and bring to a boil.
  3. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  4. When the water boils, add your potatoes and sausage.
  5. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
  6. Add corn and continue to cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Add shrimp and cook for no longer than 3 minutes.
  8. Drain, and serve, spread out on your craft paper or newspaper, with warm French bread, or the bread of your choice.

Dig in! Have lots of paper towels on hand. Nobody needs to be dainty chowing down on this feast!

  1. I loved the topic you wrote on. It was an amazing ride of some great work.

  2. I wonder if we can get Crab Boil here. I assume I would have to get it from the USA food store.

    1. And thanks for linking up to Weekend Cooking!

  3. Yummy! Sounds similar to a New England Clambake in my part of the US (Massachusetts)!
