At our house, we eat New Jersey sweet white corn from July 4th until Labor Day. Sometimes after Labor Day, though, the corn loses some of it summer sweetness. So while the getting is good, I found a recipe for corn chowder in my Delicious Orchards recipe file.
Yes, I have a file of recipes from Delicious Orchards. When my children were growing up, I would head up to the ‘Orchard’ once a week to purchase my produce for the upcoming week. Now, I take advantage of their Personal Shopping service. Back in the day, I would grab a sales sheet that had the weekly specials on one side and recipes on the back. Now I don’t know how old this flyer is, at least twenty years, the sheet is dated for May 30th through June 5th. D.O., can you search your archives to find out how old my sheet is?
I made the chowder the other evening. It’s different than the one I posted on August 18, 2016 as this one uses chicken stock as a base. This soup also has marjoram, sage, Chablis wine (which I left out), green peppers and six ounces of cheddar cheese. My husband really enjoyed this version. Again, it comes together without much effort. Just check the ingredient list to make sure you have everything you need on hand before you start. While you may think it’s too hot for soup right now, make it now and freeze it for a crisp fall day. I promise you it will bring you back to a summer afternoon.
