Picking Maryland Crab

Leave a comment

We are visiting friends in Maryland right now, and they treated us is freshly boiled crab with bay spice. Here’s the process:

First cover the table with brown paper, and get the wooden hammers ready to whacking the claws:

Then we started picking the stringy white crab meat after pulling off the big shells and hammering the claws to pull out the sweet meat. 🦀

If you enjoy working for your food (and having to pull it out of a shell), then this is a fun meal you should try.

This was my first time picking crab, and the spicy meat and comraderie of working on your food together made it a memorable time.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
