Personal Notes:
My grandparents lived in Florida and while there, my grandmother perfected many recipes. This was one of them. After we cooked the fresh caught crab and eaten as much as we could right from the shell, we'd clean the remaining crab and my grandmother would make these patties. I can still see us all sitting around the table covered in newspaper, shells everywhere, small bowls of browned butter filled with crabmeat, laughing and chatting all the while.
