Peel and dice potatoes to measure 4 cups. Place potatoes, onions, celery, water and salt in saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add corn, butter, milk, parsley, basil and thyme. Heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 6-8 servings. If you like, crisp bacon may be crumbled and sprinkled over the mixture right before serving.
I once had corn chowder in a restaurant called Lord Charleys that was absolutely delicious. After many attempts to duplicate the recipe, I've come as close as possible without knowing the exact ingredients used and find it delicious. I hope you too will enjoy it.
6 slices of bacon, diced
1/2 cup of finely chopped onion
2 cups of diced raw potatoes
1-1/2 cups water
2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper (I use white pepper for this)
2 cups of cream style corn
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
2 Tbsp. flour
3 cups milk
Shredded cheese (I use mild Cheddar cheese)
Fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon. Saute onion in 2 Tbsp. bacon drippings until transparent, not brown. Cook potatoes in the water with salt, sauteed onion and bacon in covered pan until tender. Add pepper and corn. Blend the margarine or butter and the flour; stir in milk and cook until slightly thickened. Add to corn mixture. Sprinkle parsley and shredded cheese over the top. Serve immediately.

RE: Potato Corn Chowder
This sounds good and would be quick and simple to make, even for a lunch! I make a corn chowder that is wonderful but more involved. I will definitely give this a try. (09/26/2007)
