corn chowder

my first ever craft show last fall was at a historical day event.
i didnt make a single sale.
but i did score this delicious corn chowder recipe.
from the sweet lady in the one room log house next door.
so it was totally worth it.

2 cans (13-14oz.) chicken broth
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup diced smoked ham
1 can (8 3/4oz.) whole kernel corn
¼ tsp. ground pepper
¼ cup flour
1 cup milk
¼ cup butter or margarine

Mix first five ingredients in sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Whisk flour and milk in a bowl until smooth and then whisk into corn/potato mixture. Stir in butter or margarine. Simmer, stirring two minutes until butter has melted and soup thickened. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley. Makes 5 cups.

Jen's modifications:
i hardly ever have chicken broth on hand, so i used 4 cups of water and 3 chicken bouillon cubes. i used turkey ham. i didn't measure the pepper, i didn't add parsley... but i did use real butter ;)
