In the winter, I make a lot of soups and chowders. They’re filling and a great way to warm up on a cold night. Plus they help stretch the food we have as far as possible since we don’t have a garden to eat from and the ducks and chickens aren’t laying.

Corn and Sausage Chowder
1 tablespoon butter
sausage to taste as you like
1/2 large yellow onion
1/2 large carrot
2 cups of corn (about 3 ears if you’re using fresh)
3 1/2 cups milk (whole or low fat)
1 medium potato, diced
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or if winter us dried to taste
Melt butter in large sauce pan. Cook sausage in coin shapes if links or cumbled if bulk. Add onion & cook till transluscent. Add diced potato, corn & chopped carrot. Add milk. Cover and simmer over a very low heat for 30 minutes or until veggies are tender. Be careful not to scald the milk. Add thyme & simmer for five more minutes.
You can cheat like I did and use a can of cream corn instead of two cups of corn. No one in the house will eat it but me & someone gave us a can so….. I hid it in here and no one knows better. Sshh. Don’t tell!
