Step-By-Step

1Peel the parsnips and squash (or sweet potatoes) and cut each into 1/4 inch dice.

3When the bacon pieces are lightly browned, transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to dry.
4Discard all but 3 tablespoons af the rendered fat.
5Add the onion and celery to the pan and cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, until soft but not browned.
6Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute to make a roux.
7Whisk in the chicken stock and bring to a boil: the mixture will thicken slightly.

9Simmer the chowder for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender but not soft.
10Stir in the cream, salt, pepper, cayenne and nutmeg.
