Old Fashioned Corn and Potato Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Malriah

This really is old fashioned! It comes from "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking" which was published in 1940. This wonderful book has been passed down through 4 generations of women in my family. Proof that some of the best stuff is the oldest and simplest.

I loved how easy this recipe was, and it sure tasted good too! I followed the instructions to the last letter, but since I had scaled down to 1 serving, my potatoes were cooked much faster. The combination of corn, potatoes, and milk is quite something! I had this with 7-Grain bread for a fabulous dinner. Thanks Kari!
