Kentucky Boil

In this episode Stacey and Jessica make a Kentucky Boil and Kentucky Tea

Kentucky Boil

  • 2 pounds kielbasa
  • 2 pounds shrimp
  • 6 ears fresh corn
  • 1.5 pounds potatoes (double check what I said)
  • 3 T Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 lemons

Water to cover ingredients in large stock pot.

Cut sausages, corn and potatoes into individual pieces.

Slice lemons in half and add to water in stock pot with Old Bay seasoning and bring to a boil.

Add potatoes and sausage when boiling. Cook 10 minutes.

Add corn. Cook 5 more minutes. Check doneness of potatoes before adding shrimp to cook additional 3 minutes.

Drain stock pot, discard lemon and serve all on a platter.

Makes 6-10 servings.

Kentucky Tea - Bourbon Spiked Iced Tea Lemonade with Mint

  • 1/8 cup mint simple syrup (see recipe below), use more or less according to taste
  • 8 cups water, divided
  • 5 black tea bags
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • lemon slices and mint
  • Ice

Mint Simple Syrup Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves


  1. First prepare the minted simple syrup: Combine the simple syrup ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Remove the mixture from heat and let the syrup cool completely. Strain to remove the mint leaves, and reserve any leftover simple syrup for cocktails -- this recipe makes more simple syrup then needed for this recipe, (unless you prefer very sweet tea!) but leftovers will be wonderful to use in other beverages, or even drizzled over melon balls.
  2. Boil 4 cups of water and pour over the tea bags into a large, heat-safe pitcher. Cover and steep for 10 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags. Allow to cool.
  3. Stir in the remaining 4 cups of water, bourbon, and fresh lemon juice. Slowly stir in the simple syrup, sweetening to taste. Top off the pitcher with ice.
  4. Serve over additional ice with a garnish of mint and a slice of lemon.

Serves 6-8
