Directions

  1. Process celery, green onions, and crab in a food processor until finely chopped, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a small bowl; let stand until softened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Bring chicken soup to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir gelatin mixture into soup, dissolving completely. Remove from heat and cool until slightly warm. Stir cream cheese and mayonnaise into soup mixture until smooth; stir Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce into soup mixture.
  3. Pour soup mixture into food processor with crab mixture and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour into a 5-cup mold. Chill in refrigerator until set, about 4 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I use a 5-cup mold that has separate lids for each major holiday. For Christmas it is a tree, so I lightly spray the lid with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle it with paprika before I pour the mixture into the mold. Then when I remove the mold it has a red tree on the top of it.

Very,very good. I like spice, so I use a little more hot sauce. Great to take to a party or a dinner. I like the idea for decorating the top.

The flavor is okay, but the jelly-like consistency is weird. It looks beautiful ( I even did a crab stencil in paprika) but when you cut into it ... Just odd. I might make it as a dip next time,...

very good!

This is good. Best on saltines. Next time I might add 1 more can of crab meat for more crab flavor.

I followed the recipe exactly except for adding a total of 3 cans of crabmeat. It has a very good flavor. But I was not firm enough to unmold. The crab meat was obliterated in the processor. ...

Reminds me of Christmas at my moms...

Recipe didn't gel like expected. Crab flavor was weak.

Just made this for Christmas '13. The family and friends loved it. It makes a good amount for a party. If you want to get wild, add a little minced garlic :) Thanks for the recipe. This would do...
