Potato and Bacon Chowder

I love chowders and this one has a lemony taste to it. Give it a try!

You will need:

  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3-4 large gold potatoes
  • 2 sticks of celery, ribs peeled,
  • 1 small carrot, chopped small
  • pinch of salt/pepper
  • zest from one lemon
  • 5-6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 2 cups whole kernal corn (off cob or drained canned corn)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • fresh dill, chopped
  • Cook bacon until crisp and crumble. Set aside.

In a large pot combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 20 minutes (until tender) and liquid has reduced  and thickened a little. Add the lemon zest and cream, continuing to simmer for about 5 minutes. At this point do not bring to a full boil.

Serve in a pretty bowl and garnish with the bacon and a touch of  fresh dill.
