Hearty Corn Chowder

When the weather turns cool I love to make lots of soups, stews and chowders. A friend shared this recipe with me several years ago for Hearty Corn Chowder. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!

3 T butter

1 cup carrots, chopped

1 cup celery, chopped

1/3 cup onion, finely chopped

3 T flour

2 cups water

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp celery salt

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp pepper

1 can (12 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green sweet peppers

2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 inch slices (I used sweet turkey sausage)

1 can (14.5 oz) evaporated skim milk

Heat butter, carrots, celery, add onion in large saucepan until bubbly; reduce heat and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes. Stir in flour. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is bubbly. Stir in water, salt, celery salt, paprika, pepper and corn. Heat to boiling. Stir cheese into chowder gradually. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Add sausage and milk. Heat until hot.

O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusts in Him.
Psalm 34:8

  1. Recipe sounds great! I too love soups and chowders. When I make a good, hearty soup, I feel so very domestic! I didn't realize that you have a wedding coming up soon. Enjoy these very special days. Everything will turn out lovely, and if they don't go according to plan, you will likely be the only one who notices.
