  Procedure: Keep live crabs on ice until ready to can. Wash crabs

  water, drain, remove back shell, then remove meat from body and
  claws. Soak meat 2 minutes in cold water containing 2 cups of lemon
  juice or 4 cups of white vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of salt (or up to
  1 cup of salt, if desired) per gallon. Drain and squeeze meat to
  remove excess moisture. Fill half-pint jars with 6 ounces of meat and
  pint jars with 12 ounces, leaving 1-inch headspace. Add 1/2 teaspoon
