The use of the crock pot to make foods comes from an old Jewish tradition. On the Sabbath, the housewives would place their foods around the ovens as they cooled. The ovens were turned off for the Sabbath, and in order to have food on that day, the women would put their food in pots with lids and allow them to slowly cook during the night. The low heat and the lid on the pot allowed the foods to cook in their own juices and resulted in rich and delicious stews and sauces. The practice was observed and translated in to the crock pot. So almost everything that you add to the crock pot cooks in its own heat, steam and juice, and this gives great flavor and tremendous juiciness to whatever you are cooking. It is also a very simple way to prepare a dish. So this chowder recipe will be a smash success with everyone in the household.
