TODAY IN FOOD: It’s National Crabmeat Day

Jumbo Lump Crabmeat
The whitest, biggest chunks of crab—known as Jumbo Lump crabmeat—are also the priciest.
  How can you celebrate National Crabmeat Day and still have change to spare? Here’s the secret: Those pretty puffs of lump white crabmeat on the buffet are up to three times the price of the darker body crabmeat. But the darker meat is actually tastier. If you’re mixing the crab into a salad for sandwiches (think crab rolls, like lobster rolls, or serve it on brioche, as a crabmeat BLT) or to stuff eggs or omelet, save money—and enjoy crab more often—by using dark crabmeat.

Also celebrate National Crabmeat Day by:
– Learning about the different types of crab and crabmeat, and what you should look for when you purchase canned crab.
– Read our review of Miller’s Select, our favorite brand of crabmeat (it’s shelf-stable too, no refrigeration required).
– Make one of these crabmeat recipes.
– Buy this nifty little crab cookbook: Crab: Buying, Cooking, Cracking, by Andrea Froncillo and Jennifer Jeffrey.
