Recipe

Growing up my grandmother was the queen of figuring out ways to use up any extra ingredients she had laying around the kitchen. Chowder was one of her favorite ways to do this, throwing almost anything in and ending with just enough cream to make a delicious and heartwarming soup. Inspired by her chowder creations and staring at some leftover potatoes and squash this week, I decided to make a slow cooker potato, corn, and butternut squash chowder. Everything is simply dumped into the slow cooker and then the cream is added at the end so it doesn't curdle. You could also add in some butter as well for a more traditional chowder flavor but I don't think it needs it.
