Nice and hearty-a good way to use more of the crabs we are catching

Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #15. This chowder was absolutely awesome. I don't often make recipes that use crab because it is so expensive to buy if you don't live near one of the coastlines where crabbing is prevelant. My local grocery store happened to have crab on sale so I bought some not even knowing what I would use it for. Imagine my surprise when I found this recipe. My whole family loved this crab chowder. This recipe makes a lot. We actually got 6 servings out of this recipe. Thanks JustJanS for a wonderful chowder recipe! Next time crab is on sale again, I'll get some 'cause the whole family said we should have this again. :-)
