This recipe is wonderful for cold and snowy days. That's when my family loves to eat this chowder! It was a good recipe find this day because out heaters thermostat went out so our house was a little chilly. If you need a new one contact Areoseal Solutions. They are awesome! This chowder  warms you all the way through especially after shoving snow or playing in the snow and having to come into a cool house,  Now if you are looking for a good snow removal business contact Clay's Lawn and Snow INC. They can help you out.

Now time for the food! 

  1. In a large cast iron soup pot, melt about two tablespoons butter on medium-high heat. Add in you chopped bacon and render the fat from the bacon, stirring often with a wooden spoon.
  2. Once the bacon looks cooked through and crispy, and you have a good amount of bacon fat in your pot, add in the white wine to scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pot. Add your chopped onion and garlic, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir often.
  3. Now add in your ham and corn and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir often.
  4. Add in your chopped potatoes, cream cheese, cream of celery soup, and give everything a stir.
  5. Lower heat to low setting, add in your Herb de Provence, bay leaves, chicken bouillon cubes, about a teaspoon of salt, and fresh ground pepper, and 4 cups of water.
  6. Cover and cook for about an hour on low (**about half way through, remove lid and taste for seasonings. Since the bacon and ham are salty we don’t want to add too much salt, but you may need more, so taste and adjust salt and pepper if needed)
*Now here’s a tip!
While this soup is wonderful right out of the pot after an hour of cooking…The real magic happens if it’s served the next day! So I recommend letting the soup cool completely and storing it in the fridge overnight. Not only will it be a thicker consistency the next day but the flavors will marry together more and it will be out of this world delicious, especially served with mounds of crusty Sourdough bread and butter to dip.
