This has to be one of the easiest "from scratch" soups I've ever made. Followed the instructions pretty much completely -- used Hanover Frozen Sweet Corn (thawed) because fresh corn wasn't available and I don't care for canned. When it came to the blending step, I was able to use my Braun hand blender * right in the crockpot *, and then proceed. Didn't even have to dirty another dish! * The end result was tasty, but was missing some flavor or richness I couldn't quite put my finger on. Next time I do this recipe, I'm going to try half and half or at least some heavy cream, and perhaps add a bit of bacon or some other flavoring toward the end. * Excellent method, thank you so much for sharing!
A great easy to do chowder. Love using the crock pot as well. I added a bit of hot sauce to this while it was cooking. I like to spice up just about everything!! This would make a terrific soup for a vegitarian starter by using veggie broth instead of chicken broth. My vegitarian friends will enjoy this. Thanks for posting Bluenoser
