Crabs, its the season for crabs. If you have a craving for crab, you can probably find a crab feed wherever you look — service clubs, local high school fundraisers, even your local church. They are everywhere, but who’s complaining. The taste of fresh crab dipped in butter, marinated, baked — whatever suits your fancy — is delectable and a gift to the palate. It’s a gift that is always best this time of year.
And what makes crab even better? It’s been told that the excitement of catching your own crab adds to the flavor. I can’t verify that, but the opportunity awaits for those who are willing to brave the cold temperatures and icy waters for an exciting new adventure — an adventure that takes place during the 10-day Mendicino County Crab, Wine and Beer Festival.
