German Sausage Chowder
Seems like all it takes is a bit of a down turn in the temperature and it turns into Comfort Food Week here on The Backyard Pioneer, as German Sausage Chowder found it’s way onto our table, just another example of good homestyle cooking. Making something like this chowder is also a good reason to get my Grandmother’s Club Aluminum Pot out. Grandma got this at her Bridal Shower in 1943 and it is a cherished heirloom.
