 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------EPICUREAN DELIGHT: BEARD--------------------------


1 lb Crab meat
1/2 c Milk
2 tb Butter

3 tb Butter
3 tb Flour
2 c Milk
1 1/2 c Cream, heavy
4 tb Scotch whiskey

Heat crabmeat in milk and butter. Make cream sauce by cooking butter and
flour together slowly for 2 minutes, then whisking in milk, and salt and
pepper to taste. Bring to boil and whisk until smooth. Add cream; stir in
crabmeat as soon as it simmers. When it is just at boiling point, stir in
whiskey. Serve in heated cups with a sprinkling of parsley.

No good cook is above profiting by another's mistakes. When his friend Mrs.
Jennings added a splash of Scotch instead of using sherry in the crab soup
she made for him, Beard didn't object to the flavor but did add her recipe
to his lifetime collection.
