CRAWFISH PURGE STUDY -The Memorial Day weekend officially kicks off the summer season as people will be gathering for picnics, BBQ’s and other social gatherings.  And in Louisiana, this is the time of year for Crawfish Boils.    Now if you’ve ever spent any time around those who boil crawfish, you’ve probably heard some debate people about the practice of purging the crustaceans,  the icky part of preparing the mudbugs for cooking.  Some say it’s necessary, others say it doesn’t matter.
