· 1 garlic clove, minced

· 2 tablespoons flour

· 1 cup milk

· 1 bag frozen corn kernels

Method

· Sweat the onion, celery, and bell pepper in butter and oil until soft.

· Add garlic toward the end so it doesn’t burn.

· Add flour, and cook, stirring constantly, just until it starts to take on a little color.

· Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. (At this point, you can puree with a stick blender if you like a smoother consistency. I like it either way. If you plan to puree, use a yellow bell pepper so the color doesn’t go off.).

· Add salt and pepper to taste. Add crabmeat, and cook until done.

· Add corn and heat through.
