This recipe worked well as a base for making your own chowder but no so much if you follow just what it calls for in recipe. I ended up adding a lot of extras and it turned out great.

Great chowder and nice that it is not full of butter or heavy cream. I used skim milk rather than 1% and it turned out fine. Next time, I'll reduce the amount of ginger - maybe even eliminate it and add thyme, instead.
