                         -----SOUP-----
    1       lb           Crab meat
      1/2   c            Milk
    2       tb           Butter
                         -----CREAM SAUCE-----
    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.
