Handy Tips

Placing a lid on the saucepan when softening the leeks will speed up the process. It is important to remove the lid once they start to soften, otherwise they tend to go mushy.

We used golden kumara in the recipe, as it tends to stay firmer than the traditional red kumara.

Everyone needs to try this, modified it a wee bit because needed gluten free options and no body knew the difference, teenage son went back for 3 servings, and he does not need a gluten free diet, so guess that says it all. Agree with all above and yes no other chowder will ever taste as good. Top marks to this web site.
