Yum! I love corn chowders and I've really been into sweet potatoes lately, lol. What a great combo this makes. The only thing I did differently was to not include the leeks as they don't have them at our small town market. Very good and flavorful. Thanks Bayhill for a nice keeper on a cold and rainy day. Congrats on your Week 13 win in the Football Pool.
PAC Fall 2009: Delicious and unique tasting with the use of sweet potatoes!! YUM
Wow! I love corn chowder and this was no exception. I made some modifications and eveything was delicious! I actually used turkey bacon and did not end up using the cornstarch to thicken it. I only had whole milk, but it still ended up creamy from the sweet potatoes. My step-daughter and I each went for thirds!
This soup was incredible Bayhill. I made this exactly as directed with all the listed ingredients. The resulting soup was rich and creamy, very tasty and full of great textures. The combination of vegetables and herbs was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.
This soup was awesome! I did make a fair amount of changes, but I think I stayed within the original lines of the recipe. In an effort to make it a bit healthier, I omitted the bacon. I had intended on adding in a tsp of smoke but I forgot. I also couldn't get any nice leeks at my grocery store so I subbed in shallots. The medium onion that I used was a sweet onion. It really added a wonderful flavour to the soup! I also ended up having to use dried herbs as the fresh ones aren't available here. I changed the whipping cream to 1% milk as well. I didn't add the cornstarch either as I wanted to be able to freeze this and I was worried that it wouldn't freeze well with the cornstarch added in. And the final change I made was to cook it in the crock pot on low for 7 hours. Couldn't have been easier, I simply threw everything straight into the crock and set it to go. I will make this recipe again. Many times! It was absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for posting!
very nice soup. followed the recipe except for the leeks; store had none. easy to put together and a light taste; not heavy feeling. did have to use lightcream as that was what i had on hand. all ingredients worked well together in this soup. thanks for sharing.
