Taste From My Home To Yours

My 50th post! Honestly…I can’t believe it is my 50th post! Wow, I didn’t think I would make it this far.

I have a special one for you folks. Just hang on and read on. Make sure you read this whole post. You don’t want to lose out.

For now, lets talk Fish Chowder. Wait…not just any Fish Chowder. We are talking BERMUDA Fish Chowder. I mean this chowder is the best chowder that chowder can be.

I am trying not to sound like a commercial here, but somehow I still am coming across like one.

Anyhoo, unlike a normal Chowder that is creamy, Bermuda Fish Chowder is tomato based. Full of fish, vegetables and full of flavor.

I remember the first time I made it. I was so proud. I made it for my hubby and he devoured it. Okay..exaggeration…he loved it. I did too.

IMG_3493 you all may not be paying much mind to the chowder, but more to the two friends behind it.

Well, the bottle with a seal on it balancing a barrel is Bermuda Black Seal Rum. If you enjoy a good dark rum..then that is the stuff.

The smaller, but by no means lesser, bottle is Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Pepper Sauce. Oh yum

Now the purpose of them being together is because when you have Bermuda Fish Chowder you add a bit or a lot of the two.

The flavor is unexplainable. The flavor is just plain good. No, not just good. Just great.

Listen, I could go on and on about the sauce, the rum and the chowder…but instead I will get to the good stuff.

There are a few recipes for Bermuda Fish Chowder..this one I use is a simple version that you can find on
