Maryland crab soup

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Baccon
1 pounds Beef stew meat
2 pounds Frozen mixed vegetables*
10 ounces Pck frozen whole kernal corn*
1 cup Celery, diced
\N \N Salt & pepper
2 tablespoons Old Bay
6 \N Live crabs
1⅓ quart Water
1 can Tomatoes, peeled

*Fresh or canned vegetables can be used. I have used fresh corn on the cob. Fry baccon and put into large pot. Brown stew meat in baccon grease and add to pot along with vegetables. Add vegetables. Bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour or until stew meat is done. Add salt and pepper to taste. Clean crabs by removing top shell and devil (lungs).

Break crabs in half and add to pot along with Old Bay and boil slowly for half an hour or longer. The longer it cooks the better it tastes.
