Snappy Red Chowder

This recipe comes to us courtesy of the "Spice of Life Cookbook" by Treva Davis (no longer in print). She writes, "There are three really great things about this recipe. It is inexpensive, it doesn't take long to prepare (about 20 minutes to assemble plus 30-60 minutes to cook) and you can throw it all together at once and leave it to simmer. I use inexpensive fish. If the fish has that certain undesirable aroma, as cheap fish so often does, the acid in the tomatoes and the wine will kill any fishy smell or taste. If you don't want to add the wine, use water instead. The tomatoes will still do the job for you. The end result is very flavorul, a hearty chowder for a cold night that the kids will like too."

Snappy Red Chowder Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Place all ingredients in a 4 quart sauce pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on low until vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.

If desired, simmer longer, up to 1 1/2 hours, for a richer flavor. Simmering longer will of course reduce the yield. Remove bay leaf and serve with a salad and some nice crisp crusted chewy bread.

Yield: Makes Five 1 1/3 cup Servings
