    Manami's Note:

    This more delicate cousin of New Orleans gumbo is a spicier version of the crab soup Charleston is known for. From: "Low-Country Thanksgiving" in F&W Magazine, 11/2002 by Robert Stehling. It is healthy & certain parts can be made ahead of time, if kept in an air-tight container.It is wonderfully delicious!! Submitted 08/14/2008.
