Uncle Bill's Tips: If using fresh corn on the cob, you will require 4 cobs. Cut corn kernels off cob, scrape cob for corn milk juices and add to soup as above and cook until corn is tender.You can also use 8 ounces of imitation crab along with 1 - 7 1/2 ounce of canned crabmeat. Chop imitation crab into small pieces. Squeeze the water outof the canned crabmeat.White corn or peaches and cream corn is preferred. Fresh crabmeat is preferred.
