boiled crab

6 Servings
Dozen crabs
1½ gallon Water
½  Box salt
Onions; quartered
Lemons; quartered
Bag crab boil
Bay leaf
Whole garlic; halved
Bottle (small) hot pepper sauce
Green pepper; halved
Ribs celery

Combine all ingredients except crabs and boil for 1 to 1-½ hours. Purge crabs in fresh running water. Put purged crabs in brew and cover. Let come to a boil. Boil for 20 minutes. Turn off fire and let soak for 10 minutes.

Crabs will be very peppery. If less peppery crabs are desired, use less hot pepper sauce.
