1 cup of diced celery

2 qt chicken stock

2 qt beef stock

2 bay leaves

1 cup lima beans

1 cup sliced carrots, fresh or frozen

1 cup corn, fresh or frozen

Melt the butter in a large sauce pot and sauté the onion and celery until the onion is translucent.


Add the chicken and beef stock to the pot. Add the Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, vegetables, crushed tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste.


Bring mixture to a boil and reduce the heat.  Add the crabmeat and continue to cook until the crab meat is heated.
