Catching and Canning Crab on the Oregon Coast

We had extremely good luck catching crabs in Newport, Oregon, when we were there celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.  Over the weekend, we pulled in over 30 crabs that we could keep, and of course, many more we could not.  It was very fun and rewarding.

We cooked the crabs, gave away a lot to friends and family, and I cracked out the remainder.

Then, I canned it in little 1/2 pint jars, as it was more than we could eat.  I wrote about the exact process here.

We had a wonderful time, and are feeling very blessed by the crab, but even more so by the 35 years to marriage together.
