For some reason, the girl crabs are saved for She Crab soup. What up with that?
Crabs are steamed not boiled. Seasoned with Old Bay or Wye River.

Most people think the male crabs have sweeter meat. I can't tell the difference. The roe in the females is ok, but I can eat either happily.

The one thing I will say is 1 female will spawn millions of crabs. One male may not be involved at all. Right now you can't take females recreationally, but the commercial crabbers can. I would love to see that stop for a while. Rebuild the population for a while, but the watermen whine they will be put our of business. Wonder what they will do if all the crabs go away.

It sure does, doesn't it. Even the raw oysters look good, and I'm not fond of them.

I don't recall what type of meat I used a couple years ago, Whiskas, when Cleveland played Houston I think, but the chili was pretty good. Served in a torn open Frito bag like Texans (apparently) like to do. Texas chili is good. But really most chili is good It's a nice changeup, like Cincie chile.

Baltimore is done and over with for another year (whew).
On the menu was Maryland crab cakes, oysters on the half shell and Maryland oyster stew. First time shucking my own oysters, but it made more sense than buying a container of them.

The crabcakes look really good. I tried raw oysters and I just can't eat them. I have had oysters rockefeller and they were ok, but not something I'd make. My mother used to put canned oysters in her stuffing. I tried it once but didn't notice the difference so I never did it again.

Is your recipe on the board somewhere? I did a search in recipes and didn't find one with your name.
