The recipe is simplicity in itself. Try to get lobsters between 1 and one half and two pounds in weight. Put them in the refrigerator. Don't forget the melted butter.
Use a kettle large enough to hold all the lobsters to be cooked. Add one inch of water to the bottom of the kettle and bring to a rolling boil. Add the lobster, head down, and cover closely. Cook twelve minutes for one-and-one-quarter pound to one-and-one-half pound lobster; fifteen minutes for two pound lobsters; twenty minutes for three-pound lobsters and so on.
