Steam crabs, who boils crabs???

Cream of Crab Soup 1 lb. crab meat (or more) 6 Tbsp. butter 2 small potatoes, peeled and diced 1 small onion, peeled and diced 2 tsp Old Bay (or more) If you buy crab meat you need more! I steam my own crabs with lots of Old Bay flavor in the meat 1 Tbsp dry mustard (or more) 4 Tbsp flour 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp black pepper 4 cups half and half 2 cups milk 2 Tbsp sherry (or more) 2 tsp parsley flakes In heavy 3 quart saucepan melt butter. Add potato, onion, Old Bay and mustard. Cook over low heat until tender - stir constantly. Remove from heat. Add flour salt, pepper - blend well. Gradually add half and half and milk. Cook on low heat until thick - stirring occasionally. Add crab - cook for15 - 20 minutes. Stir in sherry and parsley just before serving.
