Crab Soup

Soups
Cornwall

Cream soup based on light meat stock, with crab meat. Sometimes coloured with saffron.


Original Receipt in 'Miss Leslie's New Cookery Book', 1857

CRAB SOUP.--Take the meat of two dozen boiled crabs, cut it small, and give it a boil in two quarts of milk. Season it with powdered mace, nutmeg, and a little cayenne, and thicken it with butter mixed in flour; or, make the flour and butter into little dumplings. Have ready half a dozen yolks of hard-boiled eggs, and crumble them into the soup just before you take it from the fire. Add the heart of a fresh green lettuce, cut small and strewed over the surface of the soup, after it is poured into the tureen.
