Old-Fashioned Winter Vegetable Chowder
Note: The recipe for Cream Sauce without the Cream makes more than you'll need for the chowder. Refrigerate or freeze the extra sauce and use it in place of heavy cream in any sauce or soup that calls for cream.
To make ahead: Prepare soup through Step 5 and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat before proceeding with Step 6.
