Haddock and Potato Chowder
When we bought a set of pots and pans about 30 years ago, we found a recipe book containing this gem stashed in the box. Living in New England, we love fish in any dish, and we especially enjoy this chowder when there’s a chill in the air. —Margaret Jean, Ayer, Massachusetts
