How to Make One Pot Ham, Potato and Corn Chowder
The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.
First, prep celery, onions, baby carrots and potatoes. I use baby carrots so I don’t have to peel them. Also, you can save time by using red potatoes and keeping the skin on but, wash them first. Or, use a food processor. Here’s a reasonably priced food processor.
Next, in a 6 qt or larger stock pot, add EVOO, butter, onion, carrots and celery. Simmer on med/high heat for 3 min. stirring a couple times.
Then, add one bay leaf, thyme, some garlic powder and freshly cracked black pepper.
Next, add flour and stir.
Then, add chicken or ham stock and stir. Yep, keep stirring it so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.
Add the potatoes. Stir, cover and cook med/high heat for 45 min total stirring every 10 min. Add ham, corn and heavy cream midway through cooking. Be sure to stir every 10 min while cooking to minimize sticking to the bottom of the pot. Many of these soup ingredients already have salt so, I didn’t add any salt but, you may want to. Taste the soup first.
After it has cooled, store in refrigerator up to 5 days. Freeze up to 6 months.
How to Make Ham Stock With a Ham Bone:
If you have a ham bone, put it in a 6 qt. stock pot and fill it 2/3 with water. Cover and boil the ham bone for 1 hour. Discard ham bone and use 6 cups of the ham stock for this recipe. Label and freeze the remainder for One Pot Ham, Potato and Bean Soup. I suggest using ham stock in this soup if you have a ham bone and the time to make the stock but, chicken or turkey stock works great too.
This sinfully delicious soup is a cross between my One Pot Corn and Crab Chowder and my One Pot Ham, Potato and Bean Soup. The base of Corn and Crab Chowder soup is a yummy soup base. I took out the crab and bacon and added ham, potatoes and carrots.
Additionally, add some warm crusty Artisan Bread. Homemade bread makes a tasty soup just incredible. We just can’t eat canned soup anymore with all of the sodium and processed taste.
Oh, what can be better than a big bowl of homemade soup? It’s as if mom’s love has been transformed into a bowl of wholesome, tasty goodness. Also, it makes great game day food.
