Crabs and Old Bay
My iTunes: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
As I had suspected, some of my readers who are not from the Baltimore area were not familiar with Old Bay. Sadly, I have found that it is not well known outside this general area. It's a glorious spice for seafood, and even has its own website. I have a hard time believing people from Baltimore who say that they don't like Old Bay. I feel like it's some one from the earth saying that they don't like oxygen. Practically blasphemous = )
So, I had to post another shot of crabs and Old Bay. This is from before we cooked them, which is why they are blue rather than red. My great-aunt has the perfect recipe for steaming crabs, of which Old Bay is an absolutely necessary ingredient.
