The Bell Jar Avocado Stuffed With Crab Recipe

The Bell Jar isn’t exactly the happiest novel around, but it does have interesting insights into human psychology especially when you consider it in relation to Slyvia Plath’s own life. However, we’re not going to get into that here – instead we’re going to focus on this description of a feast from the novel –

“Arrayed on the Ladies’ Day banquet table were yellow-green avocado pear halves stuffed with crabmeat and mayonnaise, and platters of rare roast beef and cold chicken, and every so often a cut-glass bowl heaped with black caviar. I hadn’t had time to eat any breakfast at the hotel cafeteria that morning, except for a cup of overstewed coffee so bitter it made my nose curl, and I was starving.”

Reading about that, we find those pangs of hunger coming on too. So, we’re going to try making those crab stuffed avocado halves. Serve these as an appetiser to lunch or dinner in the place of a salad.
