Potato Ham Chowder-Freezer Meal

This is a great, simple slow cooker dish that you can prepare any day, but it also works well as a freezer meal. As a matter of fact, that is how I first used it. This chowder is very hardy and will definitely fill you up, but it is also full of flavor.

As a freezer meal, you will¬† need to blanch the potatoes for at least 5 minutes or they have a tendency to turn black in the freezer….and black potatoes are not exactly the most appealing thing to eat for dinner!¬† Do make sure after you boil the potatoes for five minutes that you remove them from the boiling water and submerge them in ice water to stop the cooking process!

I topped this chowder with some shredded cheese, some chives that I cut from my garden and some bacon…..because you can never have enough bacon! You could also add some green onion or other cooked vegetables.
