Sauté until lightly browned, stirring now and then. Add vegetable mixture and chicken parts to kettle and simmer 30 minutes longer.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in another heavy skillet, add okra and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned and loses stickiness, about 30 minutes.

Add shrimp to okra and sauté 3 or 4 minutes longer, or until shrimp turns pink.

Stir in 2 tablespoons sugar.

Add okra mixture to kettle. Drain second can of tomatoes, reserving liquid.

Add tomatoes, crab and enough tomato liquid and water from shrimp shells to keep mixture in kettle soupy.

Simmer about 30 minutes.

Add parsley flakes and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.

Pass hot pepper sauce and crackers with gumbo, if desired.
