Save the Sound

(Sept. 3) It's been a great year for blue crabs in the tidal rivers of Long Island Sound! Has anyone been getting out and enjoying them?

Salerno's

(Aug. 28) Many have been asking about freezing the . Several customers order about a half dozen, cooked halfway, uncut. They flash freeze them. Wrap them as to not get freezer burn. When they want one, they allow it to thaw natually (no micros!). Preheat the oven to 475 (a pizza stone is ideal) and bake them until finished (8-10 min.) So easy. If you have access to a vacuum pack, even better! If you have any questions or other ideas to share, please feel free to tell us. SPREAD THE WORD / 2 more weeks!
