Now this is one great tasting chowder that I was very happy to share with no one else but my other half! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! The only thing I might do differently another time would be to add a bit more of the crab meat, but that's definitely not a complaint but rather personal preference showing! With out a doubt, this is a keeper recipe, & I thank you for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
