Crab Bisque Preparation
remove all the crab and set aside
(I get broken Alaskan King Crab at Smiths for $1 a pound from the seafood lady)
Put all the shells in a large stock pot with the water, onion, 1 stalk celery, and garlic. Bring to boil and continue to boil for one hour. Strain the stock and keep only the liquid. I keep about 3 quarts but you can keep all of it but it won't be as thick.
Add potatoes and bring to boil. Add 1/2 crab and remaining ingrediants and cook for at least 2 hours. I usually simmer for 4-5 hours. Add remaining crab one hour before serving. Add salt to taste towards the end of the cooking timegeneraly about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon
