bowl of hearty chowder.
M o st p e o p le associate
chowder with New England,
but the real origin of this
thick fish soup is the coast
o f France. To celebrate a
good catch the fishermen
would prepare huge quanti­
ties o f fish stew in heavy
cauldrons (chaudieres) from
which the name “ chowder”
was eventually derived.
A robust soup can easily
be a meal in itself. Our sa­
vory Tuna Chowder incor­
porates foods from three
o f the four Basic Food
Groups—tuna from the Meat
Group, milk from the Dairy
Group, plus a variety of
vegetables from the F ru it &
Vegetable Group. In addi­
tion, this wholesome soup is
low in saturated fat and cho­
lesterol since it is made with
skim milk and Fleiachmann’s
100% Com Oil Margarine.
As for flavor, it's satisfying
