My food obsession does not want to stop, please take me back to Florida for the stone crab season!

10 Oct

Dear readers

As I was mentioning yesterday I developed  a proper obsession for food, cooking, baking, tasting new flavors, I do not know what goes on my brain (or in my stomach) right now, I was going through my pictures on my laptop and I found there are more pictures of food than pictures of people!

I found some pictures of when me my then husband to be and our friends went for dinner at Joe’s stone crab in Miami (as you can see below) and I suddenly thought, I need to be back, the season is about to start! I discovered that Stone crab is available for harvest between October 15th and May 15th.

Native to Florida’s Gulf coast, these rare crabs have the unique ability to regenerate their claws and limbs. These delicious claws are always in high demand and are widely regarded as one of the forms of fresh Florida Seafood. Claws are cooked daily in boiling water for 7-10 minutes and cooled to prevent the meat from sticking to the shell. They are then sorted into four sizes: medium, large, jumbo, and colossal.

I discovered this website Uber Stone Crabs so next time I can cut off going to the restaurant, for sure when we go back in Miami in a few weeks with friends I am going to order a truck of stone crab for a dinner party!
