Directions

  • Set aside the crabs in a bowl off to the side.
  • Fill a 5 gallon pot half way with water. Add all the ingredients except for the crabs. Bring it to a rapid boil on high heat.
  • Once the water is boiling begin to add the crabs to the pot. They will likely need to be cooked in 1-2 batches depending on the size of the pot.
  • The crabs will need to boil for about 25 minutes. Stir the pot well as they cook.
  • They will begin to float when they are fully cooked. At this point you can pull them from the water and let them cool in a serving platter.
  • They are ready to serve once done cooking.
  • Notice: Crabs will stay fresh in the fridge for about a week, you can also freeze them right after they are boiled and store them in the freezer.
