Autumn Chowder Recipe

Makes 1 gallon

Fill large pot with 12 cups water.

Using an immersion blender, or a food processor to blend until the corn is in small pieces.
Then add:
1 tsp thyme
2 Tbsp parsley
1 ½ Tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
2 cups onions diced
2 cups celery diced
1 cup carrots diced
2 cups whole kernel corn
⅓ cup chicken base paste or powder
2 tsp pepper
⅛ cup garlic
¼ tsp bay leaf powder
1 small pinch red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Cook all ingredients in pot for 1 ½ hours
Cut 4 cups of potatoes while waiting for soup to cook.  Set in water to keep from browning.
Mix 1 ½ cups heavy cream with ½ cups cornstarch.  Add to soup while stirring.  Mix in 4 cups diced potatoes and 4 cups butternut squash cut in 2” chunks.  Cool on low for 15 minutes or until potatoes and squash are soft, stirring constantly to keep from scorching.  Check for flavor- add additional spices to taste.  
*At time of service: Garnish top of each bowl of soup with diced chives or parsley, a good bit of bacon bits on the top center and shaved or shredded parmesan.

I think your wonderful recipe for chowder can be improved with a little cumin – a spice similar to black pepper but milder. For a recipe as large as this I suggest 1 TBSP. This tip came to me from my Yemeni son-in-law who was forced to do his own cooking when he came to the States, remembering his mother’s cooking.
