Baker's Jumbo Lump Maryland Crab Soup
What? Your not from maryland situated on the northeast coast of the
united states, then your missing out on some delicious seafood dishes.
By far one of my favorites is the Maryland crab soup, a dish
concocted from the crabbers themselves from leftover crab meat that
had been left in the freezer over the winter. This delicious soup is
made from a surplus of vegetables from corn to carrots that have been
dumped in pound after pound in a huge pot and cooked for hours before
adding the sweet, jumbo lump crabmeat that gives the soup it's name.
Here is a recipe for this variation of the original, one I'm sure you
will enjoy for years to come.
