      Nice, tasty, comforting and very filling soup recipe. I think I might add a little water next time just to thin it a bit. I wasn't sure if I should leave the peels on, I did and they they blended up just fine. I topped with some chopped green onion. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      This soup was so terrific that my dh didn't even gripe because there was no meat in it...he couldn't believe it. So much flavor. The soup was rich, thick, creamy, velvety and perfect. Exactly what we needed last week with all the snow. The corn and garlic compliment the soup perfectly and add a nice textural change. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that has gone into my Favorites Cookbook for 2013. Kudos to you. Made for Pac Spring Safari 2013.

      Shared this chowder with my vegetarian son & DIL, & we all thoroughly enjoyed it! I don't think I've ever used a real live yam in anything, even if, around here, the grocery stores call 'em yams when they're actually sweet potatoes! Anyway, I pretty much made this according to the recipe, although I did almost double the amount of corn used! A great tasting chowder, & a recipe that I'll keep around, too! Thanks for sharing it!
