Here’s what we love about this chowder. It can be enjoyed all year long. If you live in an area with distinct seasons, better yet. Simply switch up some of the additions and you have a delicious bowl of seasonal goodness. Butternut and acorn squash go in for fall, asparagus and peas in spring, zucchini and corn for summer.” Of course, if you’re a fan of basic potato chowder, there’s no need for the extra ingredients. It’s truly delicious just as it is.
