Steaming crabs

dcopeland | Jun 30, 200910:00 AM

So here's my plan. I'm traveling from my home in Baltimore to my sister's place in suburban New York for Independence Day weekend.

They want to try crabs, so I figure I can pick up live crabs in the morning, drive them up, and steam them for late afternoon/early evening dinner.


1) Where is a good place to buy live crabs that is open Friday morning and in between Fells Point and New York? I really don't want to go the wrong direction.

2) They'll survive, right? I have a cooler.

3) Any good recipe recommendations? I can always fall back on water and old bay I guess.
