: Chowder
Serves: 8 Servings
  • Hearty Homemade Corn Chowder
  • 2 Tbs. Butter
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 1 med. Carrot, or evenly chopped baby carrots of equal amount
  • 1 med. Onion, chopped medium
  • Kosher Salt and freshly ground Pepper
  • ¼ C. All Purpose Flour
  • 4 C. Vegetable Stock. (Chicken will do fine as well.)
  • 5 ears of Corn / kernels of; removed from ears. (Optional: 12 oz. frozen corn kernels.)
  • 2 med. Red Potatoes, med. diced
  • 2 C. Whole Milk
  • ¼ C. chopped fresh parsley
  • Corn Starch
  • *Optional; chopped ham. (We used our leftover Easter spiral ham slices, from the freezer.)
  1. In a stock pot, melt 2 tbs. of butter over medium heat, and add the celery, carrots and onions, and saute' until are nice and soft; 8-10 minutes.
  2. Dust with the tender vegetables with the flour, and stir until all are coated. Then season with salt and pepper, to preference.
  3. Next, add all of the stock, and bring it to a boil.
  4. Once the stock has come to a boil, add all of the corn and potatoes, and bring to a boil once again.
  5. Reduce the heat, and let covered pot simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This cooks the corn and potatoes to tender.
  6. Pour in the milk and stir.
  7. To help thicken the broth, dust in 2-3 of tablespoons of corn starch, a little at a time. Stir it well, and then let simmer with the cover on, for another 20 minutes, or until ready to be served.
  8. Note: Keeping the pot at least covered askew, helps the liquid of the chowder from evaporating too much, and losing your stock.
  9. Thickening Tips:
  10. * This recipe is not going to be a super thick chowder. If you wish it to be much thicker, you can do one of two things:
  11. Use more corn starch.
  12. Remove maybe ¼ of the potatoes after they have been cooked to tender in the stock, mash them up, and return to the pot.
  13. Serve up and enjoy!
  14. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
