CHOWDER


To make a good chowder and have it quite nice
Dispense with sweet marjoram, parsley and spice;

Mace, pepper and salt are now wanted alone.
To make the stew eat well and stick to the bone,

Some pork is sliced thin and put into the pot;
Some say you must turn it, some say you must not;

And when it is brown, take it out of the fat,
And add it again when you add this and that.

A layer of potatoes, sliced quarter inch thick,
Should be placed in the bottom to make it eat slick;

A layer of onions now over this place,
Then season with pepper and salt and some mace.

Split open your crackers and give them a soak;
In eating you'll find this the cream of the joke.

On top of all this, now comply with my wish
And put in large chunks, all your pieces of fish;

Then put on the pieces of pork you have fried
I mean those from which all the fat has been tried.

In seasoning I pray you, don't spare the cayenne;
'Tis this makes it fit to be eaten by men.

After adding these things in their regular rotation
You'll have a dish fit for the best of the nation.
