Kitty's Creamy Crab Bisque
During 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.
Kity's creamy Crab Bisque
This is  the easiest soup in the world to make, yet it tastes downright decadant.

Soup ingredients:
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

-In 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 burning.

Recipe makes 9-plus pints. Enjoy!
