      This corn chowder is my absolute! The recipe was in Better Homes and Gardens, November 1995 issue which I am looking at as I type. This chowder, with or without the crabmeat is delicious and has become a Thanksgiving family favorite. I came online to see if it printed anywhere so I could easily share it with a friend.

      Great recipe. I used "Chicken of the Sea" claw meat, and I added some of the potato to thicken as well. I also used sweet corn and yellow pepper. What an awesome chowder with great taste.

      We had to make a few modifications on the fly as we didn't quite have the ingredients as indicated. BUT - We LOVED it. That's me & my 8-year old son. Served it in a sourdough bowl to rave reviews! Son says 9 out of 10! And he wants it for dinner again tomorrow.
