ingredients

8 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 qt. whole sweet Milk or Half & Half
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped pimientos
2 tablespoons butter
1 lemon, Juice and rind only
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 pound crab meat (cooked)

directions

Combine flour, salt and pepper and mix into a paste with part of milk. Add peppers and pimientos to balance of milk and cook 5 minutes over a low heat. Add flour paste and stir constantly until thickened. Add butter, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and crab meat. Simmer gently until hot.

Based on a Recipe in The Pirate's House Cook Book, Frances McGrath

For Chicken A La King: Omit lemon and Worcestershire sauce. Use 1 1/2 lbs cooked boned and chopped chicken instead of crab meat. Add 8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms, if desired.

Serve over pasta or biscuits.
