Hi Uncle Phaed,

In the late 1970s my Mom gave my wife a pamphlet from a Women’s Club in the 
Tampa, Sarasota Florida area fund raiser in the 1960s. There was a recipe 
for deep fried crab balls.  It used a can of Campbells condensed cream of 
celery soup, crab, spices made into balls that were barely solid enough to 
be breaded and then dropped into a deep fat fryer. I lost the booklet and 
have been searching for it since as we can’t seem to get the spices right.  
I contacted Campbells  years ago and they were no help. Sure would like to 
get out of the doghouse over this one after all these years.

Thanks, Steve

Hello Steve,

I wish that I could help, but I have searched everywhere that I can think of, and I can't find a crab balls recipe that calls for Cream of Celery Soup.

The name of the women's club might be helpful.

I will post this for reader input.
