Chesapeake crabs

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Crabs per person
Crab spice
Beer

If you have access to blue crabs you can do what we do in the Chesapeake bay region. Get approximately 6 to 12 crabs per hungry adult. Plan to eat on large tables covered with brown paper or news paper. Have on hand paring knives, and wooden mallets for cracking crabs. In a large pot put one beer.

start to boil. add live crabs. Sprinkle crabs with commercial crab boil, try finding Old Bay seasoning. Put lid on pot and steam about 8 to 10 minutes until crabs are red. Take out of pot with tongs and put on tray.

Dump directly on paperon the table. Serve with French Fries, corn on the cob, and coleslaw and plenty of cold beer. Make sure you have enough time to eat. Crab picking is a slow process. Especially if you talk and that is what happens. Plan to spend at least an hour picking, eating, talking and drinking beer. Serve a good cold mellon for dessert.
