I would include, add 1 cup to boiling water to boil fresh Maine Lobster.
Interesting. Is there some science behind this? What does it do to the flavor?

I got tickled at the one about washing your feet in vodka.

Jillb, the science behind it is that it sooths my conscience. Plus, I don't like to drink alone! HA!
No really, I was told many years ago to put any white alcohol in the water - rum, vodka, and it relaxes the lobster. But I was also told to put it in the freezer about 5 minutes before cooking, as it kind of puts them asleep and relaxes them.
Who knows.
I don't want to NOT do it and have the creature scream the next time - more superstition than anything?

Hey folks, some help here.....Any Science To This???

It's supposed to be. If it dulls our brain, I would assume it would other creatures.
Sorry. I didn't see your question til today.

A lobster has a brain the size of a cockroach. Actually, they are distant cousins.
Nuff said.

Yes, to be taken internally as needed, by the cook.

Not just an anesthetic... an aphrodisiac and memory suppressant. A true miracle tonic!
