Grandpa Alvah's Fish Chowder
70 mins (prep 20, cooking 50)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
We live next door to my grandpa-in-law who will make this chowder for us every once in a while. He makes the absolute best! While this is his recipe, I can't quite get mine to taste as good as his. He tells me that when Im 91 like him, my chowder will then be as good. If you like your chowder a little thicker, you can substitute 1 cup of half and half for 1 cup of milk or add a little extra evaporated milk. This chowder will taste even better if made a day ahead and allowed to "set" overnight. When reheating, do it slowly so as not to boil.
