Three reasons why October crabs are the best:
- They’re at the end of the season, ready to hibernate and not going to molt one more time, so they’re FAT, meaning lots of meat in the shell.
- They’re HUGE this time of year. Our October and November crabs were 8 inches, point to point. WOWza, Yum.
- Cold weather brings fat (don’t I know it) which is tastier. MD crab is forced to weather cold winters, and that extra layer of fat makes them the tastiest crabs anywhere.
