Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Chowder

The Saratoga Olive Oil Co. chowder recipe for Chowderfest 2019! Meatballs, like the weather, are not always predictable. Saratoga Olive Co. forecasts a cloudy blend of grass-fed beef and lean pork with occasional splashes of Neapolitan Herb Balsamic Vinegar and Herbes de Provence Olive Oil. To finish, a sprinkle of French Citrus Fennel Sea Salt wounds out the amazing flavors. We predict an herbaceous chowder with a chance of occasional flavor overload! (Fellow chowderheads – meat ball recipe NOT included.)
