Old Mill Corn Chowder
1 tbsp. margarine
3 cups diced onions
3/4 cup crumbs (from unsalted oyster crackers)
1/4 cup flour
2 cups water
1 cup clam juice
2 cups chicken, beef or ham broth
3 cups diced potatoes
2 cups half and half
2 cups frozen corn kernels, defrosted
1 red and 1 green pepper
Chop the peppers and sauté briefly in butter, add salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste.
Mix liquids and butter, add potatoes and onions, and cook until done. Mix cracker crumbs, flour and seasonings. Add to potato and onion mixture. Add red and green peppers, mix well, bring to a boil, add cream and corn, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
We use special chowder seasoning which is not available at grocery stores. To compensate for this ingredient, season to taste with garlic powder and onion powder.
