In my part of Illinois and Indiana, it's called chowder. By definition (mine), it needs to have squirrel in it, and be cooked over a wood fire. Some people swear it needs to be cooked under a catalpa tree, soo the catalpa worms fall into the pot from the rising heat, but I won't go that far. You ever seen one of them suckers?

I happen to live in the self proclaimed chowder capitol of the world. I'm not sure about that, but every small community and club for miles around has a chowder every year.

In my childhood, every other farm house had a catalpa tree in the yard. I never see one now. Do you still have them?

We have a very old catalpa tree.. last thing around here to leaf out and bloom.. it's a pretty dilapidated old tree with no vigor left in it

They're thick in these parts, I have two in my yard. They've been in bloom lately. There'll almost always be a storm to blow the blooms off them, but we missed the big one last Saturday, so I don't think that will happen this year.
