Flavorful Corn Chowder

Ingredients

  • 6 ears fresh corn (about 3-1/2 cups)
  • Milk
  • 1 small onions, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • Additional pepper, optional
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, optional

Directions

  • 1. Cut corn off cob. Rub the edge of a knife over each cob to "milk" it; add enough milk to cob juice to equal 1 cup. Set corn and liquid aside.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, saute the onion, green pepper, celery and jalapeno in oil until soft. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, bay leaf, salt, pepper, sugar and allspice; bring to a boil.
  • 3. Reduce heat; add the cream, reserved corn and milk mixture. Simmer for 30-40 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Garnish with the parsley, pepper and bacon if desired.
