 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cups          Water
    2                    12 oz cans tomatoes -- minced
      1/2  large         Onion -- chopped
    2                    Carrots -- sliced
    1      can           Sweet corn
      1/2  pound         String beans -- cut into
   -1                    inch pieces
    1                    Hot pepper -- minced
                         Old Bay seasoning -- to
 
    1      pound         Crabmeat
 
 Put everything but the crabmeat into a large pot and bring to a boil. Cover
 and simmer, adding crabmeat, for about 2 hours. Don't buy the lump crabmeat,
 it’s a waste. I used leftover crabmeat and clawmeat, which gives it a bit
 more sweetness. If you're buying crabmeat, it’s probably best to by 1/2 lb
 each of claw and backfin.
