The nights have been chilly. The fall days have been beautiful. The market had fresh haddock so we made chowder. I say we because Jack does all the chopping. I oversee the whole process and carefully measure the wine before popping it in the oven! This recipe is somewhat unusual because it is baked in the oven. You can see the recipe here. This recipe is quite forgiving and adjustable. 2 hours at 325 degrees works well. Sometimes when feeling more diet conscious, I use skim milk with a bit of cream.
We like chowder, or "chowdah" as we say in Maine, in a mug. The recipe came from a community cookbook A Taste of New Hampshire. The book is a collection of recipes from the New Hampshire Division of the American Cancer Society and no longer in print.
Now the boiling water and wine (optional) are added and the casserole is covered and baked. A salad and some crusty bread make a wonderful dinner.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
