See also

On these cold New England days there is nothing better than to cook up a hot soup or chowder to warm yourself from the inside out. While New England style clam chowder seems to be the most popular you can't overlook a hearty Corn Chowder once in a while.

Corn Chowder

  • 3 cups cream style corn
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup bacon, sliced
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cook the bacon in a large pot over medium heat. Drain, reserving about 2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Crumble bacon and return to pot with reserved grease.

Add onions and potatoes to pot with bacon and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and corn with some salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover, simmer for 20 minutes.

Heat the half and half in a separate pan, but do not boil. Remove from heat, adding it to the corn chowder just before serving. Enjoy.

Add a sandwich or a salad and you have a complete meal. Excellent choice to warm you during the long cold winter.
