Corn Chowder

Standard

I need to stop blogging so late at night….my mind turns to mush at around 10pm and I’m left with very little to write.  😛

But, I digress….this is corn chowder.  It is good.

Corn Chowder

Ingredients:

2 medium white potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped fine

1 cup of frozen corn

milk

1 Tbsp butter

salt and pepper

sprig of rosemary or strips of crispy bacon to garnish

Method:

1. Parboil the potatoes in water for 7-8 minutes, or until a knife can just pierce.

2. Melt the butter in a large stock pot over medium heat, add the onion and fry until it is just turning soft. Add the carrot, potatoes, salt and pepper and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

3. Add milk to about 1″ above the veg; simmer over low heat until the potato is soft and mushy (about 15 minutes) Make sure to keep at a slow boil as to not scorch the milk!

4. Add the corn and cook for another 5 minutes.

5. Using an immersion blender, purée the soup leaving some chunks of veg behind. Season to taste and garnish with either a sprig of rosemary or some crispy bacon.
