chowder time!

well, tonight i made the first batch of the season. corn & sausage cheddar chowder, a take on a recipe from one of my mom's cookbooks.

1 cup chicken broth
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can cream style corn
1 can evaporated milk

1 package of turkey sausage (my preference, use what you like)
1/2 or so of a medium onion (your choice, i like vidalia)

a couple of large potatoes (used fingerlings this time with pretty darn good results) washed, skinned and cubed.

cook the taters in one pot while you caramelize the onions and brown the sausage in another pan.

once the taters are done, throw all of it into a big pot and sprinkle with basil. throw in a little cheddar if'n you want. the sharper the better! it's good the first night, it's exponentially better the next night, so this is one of those you could just make in advance and eat throughout the week. well...that's what i do. get some artisan bread from the bakery, one that's good for sopping. it's a great cold-weather snuggle & soppin' kind of food.

enjoy my friends!
