Corn chowder is a beautiful and glorious thing. It’s rich, thick, creamy, and of course corny, with just a hint of bacon. What’s not to like? I’ve made many versions over the years, but I usually just wing it. This time I decided that I’d actually document a recipe. So here goes. It’s very simple, and very good.
Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until it’s just starting to crisp (about five minutes). Drain off half of the bacon fat (and discard it or use it for another use). Add the leek into the pot with the rest of the drippings and cook two minutes. Add the wine and cook five minutes longer.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pot, bring just to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and let things simmer for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
Adjust the seasoning as desired.
Serve with some crusty garlic bread and enjoy!
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
