Depression Era Corn Chowder (from all recipes)

Depression Era Corn Chowder (from all recipes)

 

Ingredients

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 3 cups diced potatoes
  • 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

 

Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine broth, corn, onion and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until potatoes are just tender.
  2. Stir in evaporated milk and butter until butter is just melted. Season with salt and pepper and serve at once.

Note:  I like my chowder to be thick so I thicken this up with some flour and water then cook for another couple of minutes.  We serve with oyster crackers and/or crusty bread.
