I still like buying a lb of Jumbo Lump for $26 per lb and making crabcakes ewhen I dont feel like cutting all my fingers up with hard crab shells
I place a big lump on my devilled eggs sprinkled with Old Bay.
THAT's good stuff!!
My family crabbed when I was young. To me, it's bring home and party food. I have never ordered whole steamed crabs in a restaurant.
"Market Price" is a scam. Whether the mark-up is 250 or 300% makes it irrelevent. Or, just change the price on the chalk board. The secrets should be kept to the recipe.
