“Couldn't find an after Christmas ham chowder recipe that started with slow cooking the ham bone leftovers. Ended up taking ideas from multiple recipes to create something that worked out pretty well.”

Instead of cumin, I threw in different spices (chives, onion powder, garlic powder, dill weed, celery salt, fresh ground pepper, a little hot sauce) and I threw in about a cup and a half of diced ham. Instead of regular milk, I used one full can of evaporated milk (it easier to cook with, imo). Very hearty and comforting soup. The whole family enjoyed it.



I found this to have a lot of broth; I like my chowders nice and thick. Next time I think I'd use less chicken stock. Maybe use cream instead of milk. And pureeing just one cup of the chowder didn't add very much body. Great flavor though. I wasn't sure about the cumin but it was tasty! I added my potatoes and carrots about 2 hours before we ate dinner and kept it on low.



The cumin does not go with the ham. I can only image that those giving this a good review were very hungry when they ate the results &/or used very old, pre-ground cumin. I grind my cumin just prior to using it.
