 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      qrtr          live lobsters -- or up to 3
    3      tbsp          butter
    4      c             milk
      1/2  pint          whipping cream
 
 Steam the lobsters. Remove the meat from the shell. Cover and cool.
 
 Melt the butter in an enamelled cast-iron saucepan or a flameware saucepan.
 Add the lobster meat and simmer over low heat for a few minutes, add the
 milk and stir most of the time until hot, add the cream and keep on
 stirring. When hot, simmer for a few minutes, but do not boil. Cool. Cover
 and refrigerate 12 to 24 hours before serving, to develop the full flavor
 of the lobster. Reheat, without boiling, and, just before serving, season
 to taste with salt and pepper.

 NOTES : This makes a delicious meal to serve in the garden, with a
 basketful of hot buttered crackers, and followed by strawberries, thick
 cream and maple sugar.
