The Last of the Summer Corn

This is a recipe I got many years ago from a friend up north by way of Maine. Hope ya’ll enjoy this recipe.

Northern Corn Chowder:

2 slices of bacon, cut into strips

1 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 yellow onion, diced

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups fresh corn

1 potato, peeled and diced

2 1/2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

In a heavy bottom soup or stock pot, sauté the bacon in the butter on medium heat until the bacon is cooked, but not crisp. Add the flour and onion, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the potato, corn, milk, salt, black pepper, and stir well.

Bring up to a gentle simmer, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes and onions are tender. Ladle half the chowder into a blender and blend into a fine puree. Add back into the pot with the other half the un-blended mixture. Adjust the seasoning and serve immediately.

I hope ya’ll give this recipe a try and let me hear from you about what ya’ll think .

Hope to see ya’ll really soon.
