Summer Sweet Corn Chowder
« on: August 01, 2015, 03:11:06 PM »
Had this today and it was awesome.

Pappy’s Corn Chowder

5 cups water
6 ears corn
12 ounces small yellow creamer potatoes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic smashed & chopped
1 small batch fresh thyme
4 slices bacon
2 heaping tablespoons flour
2 cups half & half
1teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter

Bring the water to boil. Meanwhile shuck the corn and remove silk. Cut off the kernels and save (must be at least 4 cups of kernels). Place the cobs into the boiling water. Add the potatoes and salt. After the water starts to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Check the potatoes for tenderness and remove to a separate bowl. Scrape the corn cobs and discard. Corse chop the onion and remove thyme leaves. Cut the bacon into ˝ inch pieces and cook in a separate skillet until crisp. Remove bacon and add the butter to the bacon grease, then add the onions and garlic then cook for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour in this grease mixture, whisking until well blended to make a slightly brown roux. Add the roux to the corn water and whisk. Add the reserved corn kernels, the cooked potatoes, slicing them in half as you add them, the half & half, thyme and sugar. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until the corn and potatoes are heated through. Stir in the crisp bacon and season as desired with cayenne and paprika or hot sauce.

That really does sound good, I can only imagine how the left overs,(if any is left) will warm back up,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I made a double batch with a dozen ears on Saturday and fed 5, had enough for my lunch yesterday along with fresh sourdough bread and sliced tomatoes. Doesn't get much better than that.

For chowder that would work or you could buy some frozen corn and it would work also. Not as great as fresh, but ok. Don't you have a farmer's market or roadside fruit stand with fresh veggies?

I went to 2 produce stands but the ears were very small and still .50 a ear. I was looking to roast them.

Ended up with a Italian succotash blend

Corn is pricey here too and the ears are small because of the drought. We did get some local peaches and cream that was really tasty.
