Just wanting a good corn chowder recipe! Thanks
I am not a measureer, so here goes
slice 2-3 strips of bacon into slivers and render the fat out over medium heat in the large heavy bottom pan you will be using. remover the bacon and save it for later. adda chunk of butter to the pan and add diced onions turn to low and cover and sweat the oinions about 5 minutes. add 1/2 cup of flour to the pan whiskink it smooth as you can. then add about 4-6 cups WHOLE milk, whisking all the time until thick.
add corn- either canned, frozen, fresh or grilled fresh and a can of cream style corn
Diced peeled potatoes and salt and pepper to taste simmer about 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender
sometimes I mix it up with peppers, chilis and cumin for a southwest flavor. add a bit of heavy cream or 1/2 and 1/2 at the end
