      A very tasty crab chowder though I admit I did make a few adjustments to meet our taste preferences. I used all the listed vegetables and added a diced onion, four cloves of minced garlic and two sliced leeks. I kept the proportion of liquid the same - as I like my soups thicker rather than thinner - used all the stock specified, but used only 1 cup of low-fat milk, and in place of the other two cups of milk, I used 1 cup of plain yogurt and 1 cup white wine. (I like to squeeze wine into soup recipes if I can find the space for it!) I also used only one tablespoon of melted butter and if I make this again - which is highly likely - I think I'll cut the butter back even more. Not that I don't love butter; just that I try not using it where I know we won't really miss it. Guided by the Zaar Kitchen Dictionary, I added some slivered almonds just before serving. Yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe, weekend cooker. You do need to adjust the cooking time at the beginning of the recipe: it currently reads as 13 minutes but in the directions this is clearly stated as being a slow-cooker recipe! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

      Really easy to make, i did it on the stove for only a couple of hours rather that in the slow cooker. Next time i think ill add a tin of salmon and a few shrimp in addition to the crab, the sea food flavor was too mild for my taste buds...good recipe.
