      1 tablespoon vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil
      2 tablespoons butter
      2 all-purpose potatoes, peeled and diced
      2 ribs celery, chopped
      1 medium yellow onion, chopped
      2 carrots diced
      2 tsp crushed garlic(I use the kind in a jar)
      1 tsp paprika
      1 bay leaf, fresh or dried
      Salt and freshly ground black pepper
      1 tablespoon Seasoning salt(Use your favorite mix)
      3 cups vegetable or chicken stock or broth
      1 bottle clam juice
      1 cup fat free 1/2 & 1/2
      3 cups corn kernels, scraped fresh from the cob or, frozen kernels
      8 ounces cooked lump crab meat(2 cans – I’ve also used 1 can & 1 pkg Immitation Crab “krab” chopped up)

      Heat a deep pot over moderate heat. Add oil and butter.
      As you chop your veggies, add them to the pot: celery, onion, and carrots. Add bay leaf to the pot.

      Season vegetables with salt and pepper, the other seasonings and garlic. Saute veggies 5 minutes. Add in potatoes and saute another 5 minutes.Stir in broth and combine.

      Simmer for 20-30 minutes, adding clam juice the last 5 minutes. Stir in milk and combine. Bring soup up to a bubble.

      Ladle about 1/4 of the soup into a blender and blend well. Pour back into pot and add corn and crab meat and simmer soup 5-10 minutes. Adjust the soup seasonings.

      Remove bay leaf. Ladle soup into bread bowls or soup bowls and top with oyster crackers
