Sweet and Spicy Crawfish Boil

Weekend crawfish boils with family and friends are one of the best parts of Louisiana springtime. Every family uses their own special blend of herbs, spices, citrus, and fixings for their boils, but we’ve seen an exciting new ingredient popping up more often recently: pineapple. The tropical fruit gives boils an exotic tartness, and the sweet-and-spicy 
pineapple can’t be beat. This year, try out our new crawfish boil with a few extra sides to keep it interesting.
