SWEET CORN CHOWDER


Sweet Corn Chowder

Serves: 6 

Cooking time: 10 minutes + 6 hours


 INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups corn kernels cut from 4 ears of fresh sweet corn (can use frozen but won’t be as sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups peeled and diced white potatoes
  • ¾ cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 cup chicken stock
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Brown the corn in butter using the Brown setting on the cooker. This should take about 10 minutes for the corn to turn golden and very sweet.
  2. Change to the slow cooker setting and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well.
  3. Cover and cook for 6 hours on the LOW slow cooking setting. Serve with crusty French bread. For a creamy version, stir in 1 cup sour cream and serve.
