This recipe is tried and true. It’s been changed; I’ve gone back to the previous version; and I’ve changed it again over the years. When I was a child, it took me a long time to put together just how crab cakes came to be. We’d go crabbing one day, and several days later, we’d have delicious crab cakes. I guess I just never happened to be in the kitchen to see the crabs go in the pot to be boiled and picked.

One Christmas, I made crab cakes to take to a friend’s house in Charleston.
