Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Old Bay Seasoning. Here is what they say about the Crabs. In Maryland, the pride and joy of the Chesapeake Bay Coastline is the prized blue crab. Steaming crabs is a social event- a celebration of family and friends, where everybody gets a little messy and has a lot of fun.\Just think when we lived at Long beach we could get crabs right out of the bay. We would spread newspaper on the tables, steam the crabs and enjoy the family and friends. Those were the good old days
