Artichoke Crab Soup

12 ounces of fresh lump crab meat
1/4 cup organic butter
1/4 cup unbleached organic flour
2 cups organic milk
1 1/2 cup organic half and half
1 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
14 oz. artichoke bottoms chopped
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoon white wine

I know this is not a healthy soup.  It definitely has a lot of fat.  But think of it a special treat once in a while a treat is ok.  And this soup is really good.  

Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat.  Add flour and stir until smooth.  Stir constantly until slightly golden. Slowly stir in milk and half and half.  Add cheese.  continue to stir while cooking over medium heat until thickened.  Add artichokes, crab, white wine and white pepper.  Simmer a couple of minutes and serve hot.  
Enjoy this wonderful soup.
