The theory of their origination is that they are from Russia or Germany, and came to the U.S. via the Volga Germans who settled in Nebraska, Kansas, and North and South Dakota in the 1900s.

 Creamy crab soup loaded with chopped vegetables and lots of crab meat.

This crab soup is a combination of elegance and comfort in a bowl. Plus, even though this soup is creamy, it is actually fairly light. There is only a half cup of cream in the six cups of liquid. Instead, the soup is also thickened with some dissolved cornstarch or arrowroot.
