Kitty's Creamy Crab Bisque
the War of 1812, a lady named Kitty Knight convinced a British
admiral to spare her house when the Red Coats invaded the eastern shore
of Chesapeake Bay and burned most of
Georgetown, Maryland, to the ground. Although Kitty was from a
prominent family and was said to have danced with George
Washington at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia,
stubborn rumors persist that her
house in this scenic town on the banks of Sassafras River was a
brothel. It still stands today as an inn and
restaurant with its own website that proclaims, "The historic Kitty
Knight has been making special memories for generations." No doubt. My
childhood memories of the Kitty Knight House are of creaky wooden
stairs, bathroom fixtures that seemed straight out of the early 19th century and the most amazing soup. My
mom got the recipe and couldn't believe how simple it was to make.
Neither will you.
This is the easiest soup in the world to make, yet it tastes downright decadant.
6 11.5-oz. cans Campbell's green pea soup
4 11.5-oz. cans Campbell's tomato soup
4 6-oz. cans crab meat
1 5-oz. can evaporated milk (whole, 2% or fat-free)
1/2 cup sherry
1-2 tsp. liquid crab boil
2-3 cups water
a large soup pot, combine Campbell's pea and tomato soups, fluid from
the crabmeat cans and 1 cup water. Turn heat to medium and use whisk to
combine pea soup and tomato soup. This may take 10-15 minutes
cause the pea soup is very gelatinous, but you want the soup to heat up
slowly or it will burn at the bottom of the pot. Add water as needed to
produce a creamy base.
-When soup is lump-free and hot, add 1 tsp. crab boil. Stir in.
-Add crabmeat. Stir in.
-Add sherry. Stir in.
-Add evaporated milk. Stir in.
-Add more crab boil to taste. (1/2 to 1 tsp. depending on how hot you like it. Taste test to get it right.)
-Add water to get desired consistency, if necessary. -Reduce heat to low and let sit for a half-hour or so, stirring
occasionally with wooden spatula, scraping bottom of pot to keep from
Recipe makes 9-plus pints. Enjoy!
