Corn & Potato Chowder

International Women's Day

I made this soup for international Womans Day, one of the hosts is Zorra at Kotchtop two day. It's easy to make and tastes delicious. I thought its bright yellow colour was very fitting.

Ingredients (serves 4)
2 tsp butter100g ham, chopped
1 onion, sliced
500g small washed potatoes, peeled, cut into 3cm chunks
1L (4 cups) chicken or vegetable stock
1 440g can corn kernels, drained
1 440g can creamed corn
S & P, to taste

MethodHeat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook the ham for 3 minutes. Add the onion and cook for a further 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Stir in the potatoes and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add the corn and creamed corn and simmer gently, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve hot.
