Note to readers
The Feb. 27 Quick Cooking recipe for Quick Crab Chowder called for a package of seasoning blend. Many readers had questions about this product. Seasoning blend is available in many supermarkets in the frozen vegetables section.
It is a combination of chopped onion, bell pepper, celery and parsley. Fresh-chopped vegetables can be used in lieu of the bagged combination. Simply substitute 1 cup chopped onion, 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper, 1/4 cup celery and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for the bagged blend.
