Frogmore Stew is considered a classic Low Country South Carolina dish. This dish is also know as Low-Country boil and Beaufort Stew. The dish gets its name from a place that has only a post office on one side of the road and a two-story white country store on the other. Frogmore is the mailing address for the residents of St. Helena Island just off the South Carolina coast.

Frogmore Stew is actually not a stew and it contains NO Frogs! Frogmore Stew features two main ingredients, fresh shrimp and freshly-shucked yellow corm, but most anything that is good boiled, such as crabs, redskin potatoes, and even crawfish can be added. This seafood boil is usually served on paper plates around newspaper-covered picnic tables outdoors, with plenty of ice-cold beer.
