METHOD: Pick through crabmeat for shells and set aside in a bowl. Sweat shallot in oil, add cream and allow to reduce by half. Mix egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Old Bay, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Combine mayonnaise mixture with peppers and shallot. Add crabmeat to dressing (do not over mix). Add salt and pepper to taste. Mixture should form into a ball; if not add a small amount of bread crumbs to stiffen it. Form the crab mixture into the desired size. Heat olive oil or butter in a nonstick sauté pan. Sear crab cakes on both sides until golden brown and hot in the center. TO SERVE: Place crab cake on wilted spinach or greens, drizzle with your favorite sauce, and garnish with greens. (YIELD 8-10 CAKES)

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
