Mom's Corn Chowder....cloudy...windy...20's

 Another cold and blustery day here in the Ozark mountains, where the north wind is whistling around the windows, and I have to go out into it to feed and water all the animals. Perhaps that's why we eat so much soup around here, it's certainly nice to come into a steaming bowl after being out in the elements !!
This is a very old recipe and it's always a hit, whenever served!                     
 Mom's Corn Chowder

 1 cup frozen lima beans OR peas(Mom never did this but it's healthier)

3 slices lean bacon

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

3 1/2 cups peeled and chopped(small pieces) white potatoes

1 cup frozen corn

1 cup evaporated milk ***See note***

1 can creamed corn

Oyster crackers(Mom always served these)


Cook lima's or peas in 2 cups water until tender. While cooking sauté bacon, remove from pan and sauté onions until golden in same pan. When beans are tender remove from water and add potatoes and enough additional water to just cover the potatoes. Bring to boil, add frozen corn and cook both until tender. Don't drain, add bacon and onions and beans and creamed corn and evap. Heat and stir, be careful not to boil. Top with seasoned salt and ground pepper.
This is from memory, but I think it's close. Enjoy!

Note: We will have an idea of how to use the other 1/2 cup of evaporated milk for you,  A delicious, unusual cookie recipe that we'll share on Saturday.
