Preparation

Step 1



1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Place flour in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet; cook over medium heat 15
minutes or until brown, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from
heat.

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over
medium-high heat. Add carrot and the next 5 ingredients (carrot through
garlic), and sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add Old Bay
seasoning, salt, black pepper, dried thyme, and bay leaf; cook for 1
minute. Sprinkle the browned flour over vegetable mixture, and cook 1
minute, stirring frequently. Stir in clam juice, and bring the mixture
to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until mixture is
slightly thick, stirring frequently.

Stir in the milk and half-and-half; cook 4 minutes. Stir in crabmeat and
sherry; cook 5 minutes or until the soup is thoroughly heated. Discard
bay leaf before serving. Yield: 9 servings.
