Maryland-style crab soup means a tomato broth and plenty of juicy lump or backfin crab meat. It& found on menus all around the state, and is a delicious, comforting treat, especially in late summer and early fall, when crab meat is still plentiful.
I just love a bowl of steaming hot Maryland Vegetable Crab Soup, don't you? It always takes me back to my summers in Annapolis where as a child I crabbed and fished on Back Creek. I would wake up early in the morning and tie my lines just right.
