Lobster Newburg Recipe

The last week i have been busy with canning. I make some grape jelly, caned some and froze some figs I also made some figs cookies. Which all things turned out better good. Today i wanted to show you a great and easy recipe.  This recipe is best using live lobster, but you can use canned lobster-not as good but will work. Next: How to cook a live lobster. First make a good tasting cooking broth by adding water, thyme and bay leaves in a large pot. Squeeze a fresh lemon into the water and place the lemon into the water and place the lemon rinds in the water. Bring to a high boil.

Then clip the rubber bands off the live lobster. Pick lobster up and then place head first into the boiling water. Cover, and cook for 15 mins. or until fully cooked. The lobster shells will be bright red and the tails will be curled when they are done.


1/3 Cup Butter or Margarine

2 Tablespoons enriched Flour

2 Cups light Cream

4 beaten Egg Yolks

2 Cups Live Lobster, cubed

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Cup Cooking Sherry
