For those fish and seafood lovers out there, this is a soup you will love. Served with a slice of fresh homemade bread, it makes a great meal for those cool autumn days.

1 package frozen corn
3 medium potatoes (peel and chop)
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup water
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 stalk celery (chopped)
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in the butter until tender. Add broth and water, corn, and potatoes, bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat to slightly cool.
Put half of the corn mixture into a blender to puree. Return to pan and stir in crab meat, milk, salt, and pepper. (cook over low heat do not boil)
