Hiker's Chowder

This dish was created by my mother's cousin in order for him to achieve his Eagle Scout cooking medal in the 1940s. It has been a favorite of all who've tasted it. It freezes well and tastes even better reheated. A great cold weather dish that serves a bunch of people and goes well with cornbread. People try to improve the original recipe by adding more vegetables, but then it just becomes vegetable soup.
