Maryland Blue Crab Stew

I do not eat crabs but so many of my friends do that I came up with several recipes just for them. This is a stew that was suppose to be a creamy soup but somewhere I decided to take a different direction with it. Hope ya’ll enjoy it.

Maryland Blue Crab Stew

4 cups heavy cream

2 pounds lump crab meat

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon Old Bay ( you can use as much as you prefer)

1 small can mixed vegetables

Place the cream into a 3 to 4 quart dutch oven and warm over a medium heat. Do not let it boil or it will curdle. Reduce the heat to low add the spices and crab meat. Stir gently to mix try not to break up the crab lumps.Add the vegetables gently and stir to combine. Simmer gently for 4 or 5 minutes or until the crab meat is heated. Stirring very gently from time to time. Taste for seasoning. Adding more Old Bay if needed.

See ya’ll soon.
