Maryland Crab Soup
Eddie's Market in Baltimore, Maryland, shared this recipe with us; it's a great way to use up the corn and steamed crab left over from a crab feast.
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 medium boiling potato, peeled and cubed
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
1 stalk celery, trimmed and chopped
1⁄2 lb. green beans, trimmed into 1" pieces
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1 cup fresh or frozen lima beans
1⁄2 cup fresh or frozen peas
4 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
1 1⁄2 tbsp. dry mustard
Pinch red pepper flakes
1 28-oz. can whole peeled plum tomatoes
1 lb. jumbo lump crabmeat
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, green beans, corn, lima beans, peas, worcestershire sauce, Old Bay, mustard, red pepper flakes, and 6 cups water in a large pot. Add tomatoes, crushing them in your hand, and juice from can. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes.
