This is an easy crab soup made with good quality crabmeat, milk, and evaporated milk or cream. A small amount of nutmeg and some dry sherry add complementary flavor to the soup.

Serve this soup with oyster crackers or saltines.


  • 2 cups crabmeat, flaked and picked

  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 cups half-and-half, or evaporated milk

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 strips lemon peel

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or to taste

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 4 tablespoons cold water, to mix with cornstarch

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients except sherry and crushed crackers in slow cooker; stir to blend ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 5 hours. Just before serving, stir in the sherry.

  2. Add the cornstarch mixture, turn to high, and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Recipe Variation

  • As a variation, add cooked shrimp to this soup about 30 minutes before serving time.
