Absolutely the best homemade chowder, and practically beats any I've tried anywhere else! I followed the recipe to a T, with only 3 minor changes. First, I sauteed bacon with the onions, then added the rest of the veggies and liquid and simmered all together. Secondly, I didn't have half and half, but I had whole milk on hand, and that worked just as well. Everything came together perfectly!! Third, I added corn, because I like corn in my chowder and so does my family. I doubled the recipe and it makes a big pot that feeds a family of 6 adults, plus leftovers. Make sure to cook the roux a bit before adding the cream to cook away the flour taste. And the longer you cook the cream with the roux, the thicker your base will be. My chowder was perfect!!! And who would've thought that red wine vinegar (the secret ingredient) would have brought all the flavors together so wonderfully! This has to be the most easiest and super tasting chowder ever.
