2019 Cookery Project — Frogmore Chowder

Frogmore Chowder

Frogmore Chowder

No Frogs Were Harmed in the Preparation of this Frogmore Chowder
(Mainly because Frogmore Chowder contains no frogs)

According to Wikipedia, Frogmore is a community near Beaufort, South Carolina, and the name “Frogmore Stew” was coined by one of the owners of a local fish company in the 1960s. I didn’t get a chance to try it in Charleston, even though it showed up on approximately 72% of the local menus, so I decided to make it at home. I used a recipe from The Washington Post.

The dish is heavy on the cream, which has never stood in the way of my search for a good recipe. (Cream and butter are our friends!) In addition to the usual suspects, the stock contains thyme leaves, white wine, and clam juice.

The other four main ingredients—the stuff that makes Frogmore Chowder the dish that it is—are corn, fingerling potatoes, shrimp, and kielbasa sausage.

Liked it a lot.

★ Disaster. Inedible. Poisoned the cat.
★★ OK, but once is enough.
★★★ Mixed results. Something went wrong, but might try this again.
★★★★ Good, but lacks that special something.
★★★★★ Excellent. Goes into my “This is a winner” file.
