Sally's Famous Corn Chowder
Submitted by: Sally Phillips
This is the best I have ever had, but then I am prejudiced.
Fry 5 strips of bacon and save.
In about 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease, sauté chopped onion till clear.
Put in sauce pan with 2 cups water, 3 small potatoes cut in bite size pieces.
Cook until the potatoes are done. In a stock pot put onion, potatoes, water, one cup milk and one cup of half-and-half together with one can of chicken broth..
Add one can creamed corn and one can regular corn. Cook slowly for about a half hour then put in fridge overnight. It tastes best that way. The next day add flour to thicken. This part is tricky. I just put flour in till it is the desired thickness. It varies every time. I like it thick myself. This of course is while it is reheating. When heated, put in bowls and crumble that bacon you fried yesterday over it. You can add celery, but if you do, it is no longer Sally's Famous Corn Chowder. It just gets better with age.
