Steamed Blue Crabs

1/2 cup seafood seasoning
1/2 cup salt
3 cups white vinegar
3 cups beer (or water)
3 dozen live Blue hard crabs

Mix seasonings, vinegar and beer (or water) well. Put one-half crabs in a very large pot with rack and tight fitting lid. Pour one-half of seasoning mixture over top. Add rest of crabs and remaining liquid. Steam covered, until crabs turn bright red color, about 20 to 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

Serves 9-12, depending on the size of the crabs.
