Every fall I can't wait to dig in and pull the last of the fresh potatoes, carrots, onions and of course fresh corn. This year is been extra special, as we have our own fresh corn.
Corn Chowder Soup has been a favorite for years. It brings back memories to many ski vacations.
I will give you the original recipe, whereas I actually double all the vegetables. We all like our soup thick.
- 2 tins creamed corn ~ I use fresh corn from about 4 large cobs.
- 2 tins cream of celery soup
- 2 tins cream of mushroom soup
- 1 onion
- 1/2 green pepper
- 2 C. cooked potatoes ~ I add a few carrots and celery stalks.
- 1 large tin chopped tomatoes
- 1 pound bacon ~ I use Mennonite Farmer Sausage from Rempel's
- 2 quarts milk
- You need to add pepper and salt to taste.
Place all ingredients into large soup pan and heat slowly as milk tends to burn on quickly.
You can almost taste this. Imagine the aroma in your kitchen.
Hope you can all get out there and find some fresh Chilliwack Corn.
I freeze this soup. No soup tastes as good as fresh, but when one does not have the fresh produce in winter, this is second best.
