March 20, 2009, Newsletter Issue #412: Check Crab's Gender Before Cooking

Tip of the Week

Known for its tender, flavorful meat, recipes with crab are numerous and often creative. Many of these recipes specify the crab gender --- in most cases, calling for she-crabs. How can you tell the difference in gender? Look at the underside of the crab. Females have a triangle-shaped marking in the center of the shell; a long spire marks males. Check the crabs you are using for your recipes to be sure you have the right gender.
