Favorite Ingredients Friday - Soup Edition II

When I was in college, we used to cook some amazing meals. Since I was majoring in Hospitality Administration, I was going to school with a lot of future foodies. Even my regular group of friends who weren't in my major were really into food.

I belonged to a business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. In this group of people, I became friends with some amazing people. One of my very good friends was in the hospitality program with me. We arranged our schedules to take most of our classes together and always worked in the same group on projects. During the first year of the program, we took a class called Lunch. Okay, it wasn't really named that, but I don't remember its real name. Everyone called it lunch. It won't come as any surprise to tell you the second year included a class called dinner.

It sounds like I have a couple of posts I need to write talking about those classes. Anyway, suffice to say that we tested a lot of recipes. I remember sitting in someone's apartment one night making corn chowder. Believe it or not, I'd never had corn chowder before that night. It is so easy, so heartwarming, and so delicious. Of course, it's best when you use fresh corn off the cob. This isn't the exact recipe we made that night. I can't find it, but it's awfully close.

Corn Chowder

3 sl bacon
1 lg onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 1/2 c potatoes, diced
3 c chicken stock
2 c cream style corn
2 c milk
1/4 c butter
1 T fresh chopped parsley
salt & pepper to taste

Fry bacon in a Dutch oven; drain and crumble. Set aside.

Add onion to the hot bacon grease and cook five minutes. Then add celery, potatoes,and chicken stock. Cook until potatoes are tender.

Add corn, and heat five minutes.

In a small pot, heat milk and butter, and add to soup.

Salt & Pepper to taste.
