    Bev's Note:

    This recipe can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. If you prefer your soup a little thicker, crush 6 saltines into fine crumbs and add them at the end of the procedure, when you add the crab. From Gourmet.

      Wow, this chowder was excellant Bev. I made this tasty chowder exactly as written and it did not disappoint. We loved the addition of the cayenne. What flavor, great texture and it was quick and easy to make, what more could you want. This was a wonderful base for my Alaskan King Crab, it was terrific...I can't wait to try this with lobster, I know it will be amazing. Thanks for sharing this treasure.
