    I’ve had asparagus soup only once in my life before at an old neighbor’s. This brought back all the memories. Thank you

  2. Been wanting some asparagus chowder awhile, but I also wanted carrots, potatoes, etc. Found this recipe and prepped my veggies, then started putting together. Only thing I changed was using corn instead of green peas. This was by far one of the best chowders I’ve had in a LONG time, and I love not blending everything up but being able to get bites of all those fresh veggies. Thanks so much for a killer recipe.
