    Includes: (1) lb. Fresh Backfin Lump Crab Meat

    "Backfin Lump" contains large pieces of lump and some broken body meat. Pieces are smaller than jumbo lump but can be used in the same recipes. Great for quiche, crab cakes and as a stuffing for fish and poultry.

    Note: During our off-season of Maryland Blue Crabs, our fresh crab meat will be coming from out of North Carolina.

    Handling & Preparation

    Fresh crab meat is sold in one pound plastic containers and can be kept for about 4-5 days in the refrigerator.

    Pasteurized crab meat is in a sealed can and can be kept for several months if properly refrigerated.
