Corn and Sausage Chowder
Here's a great recipe for cold Fall and Winter nights.
1 lb ground sausage, browned
1 onion (optional- brown with sausage)
1 lb frozen corn (we use home grown)
6 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped.
4 cups vegetable or meat broth (we save the juices from canned veggies, freeze them in quart containers, and pull out a container as needed)
1 can evaporated milk
OR 1 cup cream
plus 1/2 cup flour
chives, marjoram, thyme, salt and pepper to taste
Put meat, onions, corn, potatoes, spices and broth in crock pot. Cook all day on low. 1/2 hour before serving combine flour and cream or milk to make a roux. Stir into soup. Allow soup to return to a simmer. Serve with biscuits, thick bread, or crackers.
