My Grandma Marion used to always bring a layered crab mold to Thanksgiving dinner. Boy, it looked gelatinous and gooey — new family members would always avoid eating it. But the secret was it was the most delicious, addictive, creamy, crabby concoction that any of us had ever had. Within 15 minutes of setting out her dish, Grandma would find it empty. Our family stood around the appetizer table like a flock of vultures, and of course, Uncle Peter would be there until the bitter end, scraping up any of the last few tidbits. I miss my Grandma Marion and her layered crab mold. Perhaps this year I should find a Jell-O mold pan, dig up her recipe and carry on the tradition.
