Southern Corn Chowder

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

From a cookbook I picked up sometime ago. I've changed the instructions just slightly. You could always use the bacon drippings with the butter to sauté onion and celery.

  1. Sauté onion and celery in butter in saucepan for several minutes or until limp.

I think I prefer creamed corn over chowder. Needs a little more seasoning.
