    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    Crabs are such a part of Maryland life and Maryland way....that a lot of fellow Zaar members from the Maryland, Delaware, and Virgina coast will have a "bucket load" of crab recipes. And all of them are divine! You can fix a different crab dish or appetizer every night of the week for a full year. Crabs are not grown on the farm. But we do have a special supplier to us called, "Gibby's Seafood Market" that sell their steamed crabs from the night before at a reduced rate. Now you have to get there soon in the morning right after they open but those crabs are seasoned with "Old Bay Seasoning" (a staple of Maryland, made in Maryland) and oh so good. Anyway, whenever there is a get together be it Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall there is always a crab dish. This ia a good appetizer to serve, people just grab with their hands and devour, making sure they have licked the last bit off their hands or even plates. Go ahead, try it, I promise there won't be much left for you. Have fun add or subtract whatever you see fit.

      Yummo! Phyllo cups aren't available in Australia AFAIK so I just used phyllo sheets over a shallow scone tray sprayed with oil and pushed them in a bit and gently ran a knife over the top to seperate. They had a great balance between rich and savoury I think just about anyone would love.

      I made these for my daughters bridal shower. The crab mixture was delicious, however the phyllo cups don't hold up well in a chafing dish. It is great as a dip served with pita chips or crostini.

      Fabulous Andi, used crabmeat from the fish store - went there hoping to get some soft-shell crabs but I didn't call in advance so I bought 2 lbs of crabmeat. Started lppking for recipes and yours popped right out. I had to take these to a friends' house & they were all pleasantly surprised! I used both yellow & red bell peppers, and just a whisper of hot sauce. They turned out beautifully! Prepared them just before going over and baked them there. Thank you for a wonderful appetizer (I could eat that for dinner!) Diane :)
