Works with winter squashes too!
I really wanted a simple but warming, filling chowder to eat with this great bread we bought today at the farm.
We also needed to use up a bunch of corn, but didn't have the summer squash anymore. Instead I used a small-chopped delicata that was just huge. We also didn't have celery but we used small pearl onions instead.
I made about a batch and a half, got a meal for two and a toddler, 3 work meals out of it, and still had 4 cups left to go in the fridge!
Another tip (aside from delicata/winter squashes working great) - we were short on milk, but adding a bit of extra flour-soup roux as I got towards the end (taking about a cup out and whisking it with extra flour in a small dish after the soup was basically done) made it just as creamy as can be without the milk.
The marjoram was such a delight! My husband went from 'it's good honey' to 'that was fantastic!' afterwards.
Pros: Simple setup of soup, quick to make
Cons: Lots of chopping
