From "Jane Brody's Good Seafood Book", 1994. You can substitute surimi in place of crab if you like, but the real thing is so much better. Frozen corn may be used instead of fresh. Needless to say, This is best made in the end of summer, when all the major ingredients are in season and at the peak of their flavor. Make a meal of it with some hearty bread and a garden salad. Cooking time does not include chilling the soup.
