Ingredients

1 large sweet onion, diced
2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3 stalks celery with the leafy ends on, diced
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup flour
10 slices smoky bacon, chopped
6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, diced

1
Put diced potatoes in a pot with cold water just covering them. Heat them to boiling, and then simmer 5 mins. You just want the potatoes par-boiled. Drain potatoes and set them aside.

3
Stir the onion, garlic, and celery in with the bacon and saute until translucent, about 5 mins.
4
Turn heat to low and add the flour, mix well and let cook about a minute.
5
Whisk in wine slowly, then add the diced cooked potatoes, parley, paprika, white pepper, seafood seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
6
Slowly add the half and half, stirring constantly.
7
Add the corn, and gently fold in the crab meat.

Stir slowly until corn and crab are heated through.
