October crabs

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.

  1. January crabs? Just read that Gov Hogan is sending bushel of crabs to Wisconsin governor since Redskins lost. Maybe he’ll wait until next October or at least August!!
