Potato Corn Chowder

There is something special about making a meal and being able to say,”I grew it myself!”
Watching a seed grow into a mature plant is rewarding. Cooking with homegrown, fresh picked vegetables is good for your soul as well as your body. Enjoying the fruits of your labor is what gardening is all about.
The same is true about dreams.

Creamy Potato Corn Chowder is chocked full of fresh vegetables. Hearty, satisfying and from stove to table in 30 minutes!

This soup is thickened with a corn slurry. Vegetable slurries are easy to make. Create a corn slurry by blending corn and water into a puree. Add the puree to a soup to thicken without flour.
