The Saison seemed to pick up the Old Bay better...or maybe it was because it was my 3rd mug by then. Gonna pick the leftovers today to make crabcakes and/or cream of crab soup.
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (1.25 ounce) envelope hollandaise sauce mix
4 cups half-and-half, divided
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning TM
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon cooking sherry
1 pound fresh crabmeat
In a medium bowl, blend flour and hollandaise sauce mix with 2 cups half-and-half.
Melt butter in a medium, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Slowly add hollandaise mixture, stirring constantly until thickened. Add remaining half-and-half, Old Bay, dry mustard, celery seed, and whipping cream. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Add crabmeat and sherry, stirring gently until warmed through. Serve immediately.
