Hi, Amy! Thank you for paying attention to our recipe! Cooking times can be found in each step of our recipes - the red button on the right.


I found it hard to make this recipe because it was vague. How long do I cook the vegetables, the potatoes etc. That information would be helpful. It tasted good but I had to keep checking the veggies.


Absolute delicious chowder! Thanks for sharing!
