Soup Night Edition #2: Corn Chowder

Here's another soup night recipe, this time from a guest blogger! This is my dad's recipe for corn chowder. You might want to run out to the store tonight and get all of the ingredients to make this soup for tomorrow, when the big snow hits! Here's hoping for a snow day coming up this week!

Corn Chowder

Something like this:

Chop up 6-10 large Potatoes, cover just to the top of the potatoes in water in a large pot and start boiling.

Chop up one or two large Onions.
Chop up several celery stalks

Fry up a package of bacon.
Remove the bacon from the pan when done, crumble or cut in to small pieces.

Cook the chopped onions and celery in the bacon grease until soft.  Stir in a couple of big spoonfuls of flour when its done.

Reduce heat on the boiling potatoes, add milk, while stirring, into the Pot with the potatoes until it is fairly full (you do need room for the corn and other ingredients)

Stir in all the other prepared ingredients.   Add a little Paprika and pepper.  Add a couple of big spoonfuls or clumps  of brown sugar.  Stir

Add 3 cans of corn or creamed corn or a mixture of both.   Stir

Simmer for a good long while until the potatoes are really soft.  Stir occasionally.
