JOE’S CREAM OF CRAB AND OYSTER SOUP

Ingredients

2 Dozen Fresh shucked Oysters in liquor
1 LB. of Jumbo Lump Crabmeat
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
1 White Onion
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Parsley
½ LB. of Butter
3 Tablespoons of Flour OR Corn Starch
2 Pints of Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Quart of Half and Half
1 Pint of Whole Milk
¼ Cup of Sherry
2 Tablespoons of Bay Seasoning
1 Tablespoon of Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon of Joe’s Wildside Seasoning

Recipe

Chop red pepper, yellow pepper, white onion and place in a food processor and pulse until the pieces are very small but not pureed.  Place two sticks or ½ pound of butter in a large stock pot on low heat until completely melted.  Add vegetables and sauté until tender.  Add the flour or cornstarch and mix well into the vegetables making a roux.  Add Salt, Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, and Bay Seasoning and Stir until the roux becomes thick and begins to brown but not burn.  Add 2 pints of heavy whipping cream, one pint of half and half and 1/2 pint of whole milk.  Keep the remaining half and half and milk to adjust your desired consistency later in the process.  Let simmer on low heat for approximately ½ hour stirring often.  Add the Oysters in liquor and the Jumbo Lump Crabmeat and stir in well.  Let the soup simmer for another 20 minutes.  You may choose to add more half and half or milk to obtain your desired consistency.  The longer the soup is cooked, the thicker it will become.  When serving, place in a bowl, drizzle some Sherry around the top, sprinkle with a little Joe’s Wildside Seasoning and garnish with fresh Parsley.
