Locate the freshest Dinginess Crab you can. Hint: Anello Family Crab & Seafood makes this easy.
2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Make sure your pot or pots are large enough to accommodate all of your crab and leave enough room so that the pot of water will not overflow when the crab are put in.
3. Add a generous amount of salt to the boiling water
Hey crab are from the ocean. Dont forget to keep them salty!
4. Dunk your crab
Carefully insert your crab into the boiling water. Cooling your crab before hand in the fridge will make your crab slower and easier to handle. Make sure as much of your crab as you can is under water and put a lid over your crab boil.
5. Time it.
Wait for the water to come back to a boil and set a timer for 13 min. In the mean time prepare a cold bath for your crab. Ice water works best but cold tap water will work if ice is not on hand.
6. Give your crab an ice bath
Carefully remove your crab after 13 min from the boiling water and put them in the previously prepared ice bath. After 5 min you are ready to clean your crab.
7. Eat and enjoy.
It’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy your efforts! 🙂
