Written By: Chris - Oct• 18•13

When my friend Jen gifted me a bunch of fresh produce recently, I got busy in the kitchen creating a variety of dishes so that nothing went to waste warcraft 3 kostenlos downloaden deutsch!  Among the goodies of green beans and other farm fresh veggies she shared, there was a brown paper bag filled half full with small tender ears of sweet corn Download video from facebook on iphone.  Since we’ve had a lot of chilled corn salads this summer, I thought I would prepare corn chowder instead.  I figured I could freeze some if we didn’t finish it music cost-effectively.  Corn chowder is a type of thick cream-based soup or chowder similar to New England clam chowder, prepared with corn as a substitute for clams in the recipe herunterladen. In addition to corn, the soup often contains other vegetables, such as potatoes.

4 Large Russet Potatoes, peeled and chopped
12 Large Whole Sweet Corn Cobs(or more small cobs)
6-8 Cups Corn Kernals, roasted cut from cobs
16 Cups Corn Stock
1/4 Cup Flour
1 Pint Half & Half
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
