Hot Maryland Crab Dip


8 ounces Fresh lump crabmeat
1 tablespoon Horseradish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Nonfat milk
1 teaspoon Fresh lemon juice, up to 2
2 tablespoons Calvados, (apple brandy), or white wine
2 tablespoons Onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Celery, finely chopped
Several shakes cayenne, or paprika
2 tablespoons Parsely, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. If the crabmeat is frozen, drain it well in a sieve, pushing the solids with paper towel to remove all the moisture. Fresh or frozen, pick over it to remove any bits of cartilage and set aside. In a food processor, puree cottage cheese, cream cheese, horseradish, mustard, milk, lemon juice and Calvados 3 to 4 minutes.
3. In a small bowl, combine the cottage cheese mixture (which should be very smooth), the crabmeat, onion and celery and stir until well blended.
Spoon the mixture into an ovenproof dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until bubbly and lightly golden on top. Sprinkle with cayenne or paprika and parsely, for garnish. Serve hot with crisp bread.
Variation:When thinned with 1/4 cup nonfat milk, this dip becomes enough sauce for 4 servings of pasta.
