Public House Corn Chowder

I have made this recipe for years; so long I don’t remember what older cookbook I got it from.  However, this is one of our favorite winter soups.    It isn’t highly seasoned, you can add a bay leaf, garlic, or seasonings of your choice, but the original recipe is just like this…and the simple good flavors come through.                

                       Public House Corn Chowder
  4             Ounces  Ham -- julienned
  6             Ounces  Potato -- diced
  1 1/2      Stalks  Celery -- sliced diagonally
     1/2      Medium  Onion -- thinly sliced
     1/2      Cup  Water
  1             Cup  Whole Kernel Corn, Frozen -- thawed
  15           Ounces Creamed Corn -- canned
  1             Cup  Half and Half -- or evaporated milk
Cook potatoes (I don't  peel mine), celery, onion and ham in water; covered, 20 minutes.  Add corn and half and half, simmer 5-10 minutes longer.

    1. Maybe the gruyere version? I may have some in the freezer! Sounds like a great menu - this is seriously good soup!
