    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    Crock pot E-Z; creamy, chunky fully-bodied chowder using cubed leftover ham and Half and Half(substitute, if you choose) to tempt your taste buds. Even better next day or can be frozen in muffins cups zipped tightly into large plastic bag for individual use later. Base recipe from internet with my upgrades. I'm trying it over rice as an encore; whaddya think?

      I haven't tried this so can't rate it.. Sure it's great! It made me remember decades ago- a cream of cauliflower soup served in an upscale local establishment.. I could never put my finger on what made it different . Finally found someone to tell me it had a bit of blue cheese in it...I think I will use this recipe and give the combination a try- Nora

      Awesome recipe! The only thing I did differently was I added a tsp of liquid smoke for some extra flavor. I didn't have any leftover ham so used a ham steak, I think thats where I might have lost some of the flavor. Great fall/winter recipe!
