  Extra Notes  
I had been a city slicker as a kid and then my dad was transferred to Savannah to run a hotel. We bought a bungalow on a tidal creek and it was full of crabs. I stayed down there a lot, catching crabs on a line with a sinker and any uncooked meat. My neighbor's mom taught us how to crab and how to make this recipe. She always sang as she washed dishes by the open window.....I've never stopped missing Savannah.
