Chow Down on Corn Chowder!

It's that time of year again!
I know we've been out of this for some time,
and were just waiting for the weather to cool off a bit to bring it back in!

It is so good! In fact...
It's Award Winning!

Corn Chowder Soup Mix Ingredients:
Air freeze-dried corn, rice, onions,
celery, carrots, red pepper, chives
and herbs.
No added salt, preservatives or MSG.
And it's Gluten Free!

Recipe Additions:
2 to 3 white potatoes
8 cups chicken broth
2 cups heavy cream
(When fresh corn is available,
cut the kernels off 2 or 3 cobs
and set aside. Add cobs to the broth
with the potatoes and continue with the recipe.
Remove cobs and add the fresh corn with the cream.)
For meatier chowder, add diced chicken breast,
crabmeat or clams.

Add contents of corn chowder soup mix and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.

Inventive Soup Recipe Variations:
Scallops and Shrimp Corn Chowder Soup:

medium shrimp after adding the cream

You can even make this in the crockpot...
My favorite method of slaving over a hot stove....
