paddypf, Apr 18, 12:26am
Mere male here wanting to impress. If I was to make seafood chowder in the crockpot and use the marinara mix available in supermarket delis as well as a few prawns when would I put the seafood in as I quess it might turn to mush if it was in the whole time chowder was cooking.
