I love this stuff - love love love love love it.  MIL makes it every year and it is a sacrifice for her as there is not a knife she has not met that does not cut her - actually, any kitchen utensil that has not cut/burnt/grated/injured her in some way.  So chopping veggies is quite the sacrifice for her.  For that matter, I just do it for her when I go over, because I hate thinking of all of the bits of her we have probably digested over the years.  Regardless, she makes a great cold crab dip and I finally asked for the recipe this year... and will share it here.

We love the stuff- to the point where she no longer jsut makes one to serve at Christmas or at potlucks, but makes about 6 or so containers to send home too. 

One problem is that one of the ingredients is not gluten-free.  While that makes me gleeful as I don't have to share with Jim, that also means I will be figuring out to replace it for the future.  He's a bit whiny about not being to have it...


Crab Dip
(makes about about 5 cups - as far as I am concerned - 1 serving...)

1x 8 oz package of cream cheese
1x10 oz condensed tomato soup
1 cup Miracle Whip
7 oz frozen crab meat or more to taste, defrosted, and pulled apart finely
1 1/2 pkgs unflavoured gelatin
1 cup or 1 can of water (not sure, as MIL only put "1 water" - but 1 can seemed to give the constency we needed)
finely diced pepper, celery, onion

Melt the cream cheese in a pot on low heat, stir in soup to mix well.  Add gelatin to the water and let bloom, then combine with soup mixture.  Let cool 10 minutes or so.  Combine the Miracle Whip, crab, and veggies to mixture, mix well, and let set in fridge overnight.  Hide away from husband in corner of craft room and eat entire tub of same with all his gluten free crackers while laughing maniacally, spewing cracker crumbs everywhere... uh, I mean serve next day with crackers...

More here, with more pics if desired.   At some point I will add the GF modification.

YUM! I have always thought that of the best parts throwing a party or hosting an event is leftover dip! But now that I am a grownass woman, I realized I can just have dip anytime I feel like it.

LOL - go for it!!!  I think I may grow my ass with you this week... or at least make a big ol' tub full for Canada Day when we have friends over.  It will give me a chance to try the GF version, and if it works out, I will post the modification afterwards Smiley

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
