Cooking Marron

- The most humane and easiest method of killing any crustacean is to chill it in the freezer for 1/4 hour so they enter a state of hibernation (but do not leave them there long enough to freeze them).
- Bring salted water to the boil. (sea water is best).
- Cook for 6-8 minutes, until red and floating.
- Place in iced water to cool, then after a couple of minutes, peel and enjoy.
