Saute the onion and celery in the butter in a saucepan for 3 minutes or until tender.  Add the flour and mix well.  Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add the broth gradually, stirring constantly.  Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.  Stir in the half-and-half, and corn.

Cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.  Fold in the crab meat and green onion tops.  Stir in the sherry, salt and cayenne pepper. Simmer just until heated through and ladle into soup bowls.

A rich and creamy soup recipe that is simplified by the use of frozen corn.  Fold in the crab meat at the last minute to keep it from breaking apart.
