It's true! We have so much sweet corn it's not even funny. I have been giving it away like crazy. Tonight we are going to freeze a bunch so we can enjoy it this winter. I know....it's not as good as fresh corn on the cob but it will have to do! :)
It has been raining for the last few days....NOT good harvesting weather. It is sooo wet that I can't even get into my garden or my sweet corn. Well, I can get in there but it is a big mess if I do.
Today for dinner I made SWEET CORN CHOWDER! I have to try to use as much as corn as possible. I didn't have all the right ingredients on hand so I improvised--and we all agreed it turned out pretty good.
SWEET CORN CHOWDER
6 cobs of corn
1/2 of a green pepper
2 stalks of celery
1 large onion
1 pound bacon or sausage
2 cans cream of celery soup
(I didn't have any so I used cheddar cheese soup)
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
(I didn't have any so I used cream of chicken soup)
1 can of diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
(These peppers are from my garden too!)
Start out by dicing all your veggies. Boil potatoes until tender.
Meanwhile, cut up sausage or bacon and saute with
onions, celery, green peppers and carrot. Saute till tender.
Cut corn off of cob.
Add to the sauted veggies and bacon.
Drain potatoes and tomatoes and add to veggies.
Now turn down heat and add one quart of milk.
Heat chowder slowly until heated through--making sure
not to burn or let it stick to the bottom of the kettle.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
You are done! :)
