Zwicker, Milton, Mass. she writes: Back in 1833,my great grandfather, who was sea captain, married a charming Irish lass on one of his voyages. Back them lobster was only for the very poor, used as stew or soup. This great grandmother of nine must have just about revolutionized this staid New England family, when she served lobster like this, along with the Saturday baked beans.
