Canned crabmeat

mabziegurl | Oct 9, 200609:55 PM     20

I was reading on the chains board about canned crabmeat. I always see it on food network, but why would people buy crabmeat from a can? How much crab do you really get for such a high price?

Last week, I went to the supermarket (asian) and live dungeness crabs were on sale for 2.99/lb. Of course, normally they are more expensive, but still under $9/lb. Couldn't this be steamed, cracked, and frozen and be 100x better than canned crabmeat?
