DO NOT FREEZE! The cream will separate into curds and water! Your best bet is to eat up that chowder and be happy! Unfortunately, freezing is not an option. Sorry!

Hmmmm....I make a seafood chowder with lots of cream in it. I gave it to someone who froze some of it. (I wouldn't have recommended that she freeze it but she did.) It worked well. I've done it myself & it's still good after thawing & reheating. Marajo, I suggest you try freezing a small amount & see what you think of the results.
I'm all about the food!

I freeze a clam chowder with no problem - I was quite surpristed when it re-heated ok the first time.
