All products are cooked and frozen just before shipping, and can be stored frozen for up to 12 months. Once thawed, Phil’s foods should be enjoyed within 2 days per the instructions included with each order.
Allow the chowder to slowly defrost in the refrigerator. Do not microwave. Once defrosted, pour Phil’s chowder base into a large pot over medium heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Pour the milk and cream into the second pot and warm over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes (do not allow milk and cream to boil). Slowly add the heated milk and cream to the chowder base, stirring constantly, until the chowder reaches desired consistency.
