1 medium onion, chopped
1 large potato, chopped
2-3 ribs celery, chopped
1 tbsp. salt

Directions:
Using a 2 or 3 quart pot, mix and bring to a slow boil all the soup ingredients except for the crab, frozen vegetables, and seasonings. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add frozen vegetables and bring back to bubble. Add crab and seasonings, then simmer at least another 30 minutes before serving.

Crab soup can be refrigerated after preparation and reheated. Like most soups, when allowed to set for a time the flavor of the soup intensifies, bringing out the sweet crab flavor and the Old Bay seasonings. A cup or bowl of crab soup with oyster crackers brightens up any cold or dreary day.

Personal Notes:
Fresh packed or pasteurized crab meat might be found in local food stores. Live Maryland Blue Crabs, steamed crabs, and fresh packaged crab meat are shipped by packing houses from the shores of the Chesapeake Bay all the way to the gulf coast. One such online store is the Chesapeake Crab Connection http://www.ordercrabs.com/Maryland-Blue-Crabs.html.
