Corn Chowder

This used to be a recipe sent to me by, but I changed so much of it they probably wouldn’t recognize it. AdventureMan and I loved it! It’s great for winter days when the nights are getting longer, and the temperatures are dropping into the 80’s. Brrrrrrrrrr! 😉

Corn Chowder

• 1/2 cup diced bacon
• 4 medium potatoes, chopped into small cubes, maybe 1/2 – 3/4 inches
• 1 medium onion, chopped finely
• 2 cups water
• 3 cups frozen corn
• 1 teaspoon salt
• coarsely ground black pepper
• 2 cups light cream

1. Slice bacon across the top, so that you have lots of little bacon pieces, fry until cooked through. Save the grease (there is only like a tablespoon).

2. Mix potatoes and onion into the pot with the crumbled bacon and reserved drippings. Cook and stir 5 minutes. Pour in the water, and stir in corn. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover pot. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender.

(You can prepare earlier in the day to this point, then add cream and heat just before serving)

3. Warm cream in a small saucepan until it bubbles. Remove from heat before it boils, and mix into the chowder just before serving.
