While this soup's good with fresh asparagus, it can also be prepared with frozen or canned. In fact, I like to blanch and freeze asparagus in portions just right for the recipe—this way, I can make our favorite chowder all year. —Shirley Beachum, Shelby, Michigan
It's not difficult to fix a batch of this smooth, comforting soup. It has wonderful homemade goodness. A singe steaming bowl really warms me up...but I usually can't resist going back for seconds.
