Lobster Stew

"According to experts on fine Maine cookery, the important steps to success in creating the perfect lobster stew are, first, this partial cooling before ever so gently adding the milk- a mere trickle at a time. The constant stirring until the stew blossoms a rich salmon color under your spoon, and finally, the aging, since every passing hour improves its flavor."  Marjorie Standish

Marjorie's stew has three basic ingredients, lobster, butter and milk. I wanted to be sure to allow the soup to "blossom" as Marjorie says so I let it sit for a couple of days. The most difficult part of this soup was steaming and picking the lobsters and even that was not difficult. We still have a small amount of Lobster Stew left so hurry in today and grab it while it lasts!
