Ham and Corn Chowder Recipe

As promised, here is the ham and corn chowder recipe I made up the other day. It was delicious! I'm always looking for good ways to use up a meaty ham bone. 

Ham and Corn Chowder Recipe:
1 meaty ham bone
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery, thinly sliced
4 medium potatoes, diced
5 garlic cloves, minced
3 bay leaves
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried marjoram leaves
1/2 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3 cups of milk
2 cups sweet corn
2 more cups chopped ham (optional)

Cover a ham bone with water and simmer all day long either in on the stove top or a slow cooker. Add water if the level gets below the bones.
About 1 1/2 hours before serving, take out the bones, leaving the meat in the broth you just created. Add onions, celery, potatoes, garlic and all spices. Boil 45 minutes. 
Mix the flour and cold milk together in a separate bowl. Pour slowly into the soup, stirring constantly. Add the corn and extra ham. Heat until thickened. 

Serves approximately 1 gallon. This soup freezes well.

Enjoy,
Jackie

Thanks for the recipe! I still have ham in the freezer and my family is getting tired of split pea soup. I'm going to make that on Thursday.

Jackie, I wish! You'd sure be welcome :) Tonight I'm making baked steelhead fish with curried rice.

That would be a winner with Yohn. I may just try it out the next time we have a ham.

Hi! Can I use regular flour instead of buying something special? Thanks!

All purpose flour works fine in the recipe too

Could you put all ingredients into crock pot and just let it cook all day?

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

I'm not sure. I have never tried it that way. If you do try it let me know if it works for you please
