summer corn chowder

there are a few things I want to tell you about this soup.

  • it has an incredible amount of prep.  If you have a rockin’ chef knife and love cutting veg this is for you.  Peppers, corn, tomatoes, onion, celery…
  • it was gleaned from a new favorite foodsite.  I don’t know how I had never heard of this site before.  It is run by foodies who are collecting peoples best recipes to publish in a cookbook.  Really.
  • it is really unusually good.  You saute the veg in bacon fat and their own juice before adding some milk and cream.  It has an unusual addition of allspice which I was thrilled to find I only had in whole spice so ‘had’ to crush with my mortar & pestle.

I will admit I didn’t read the recipe but bought the ingredients based on the photo in the blog.  My cooking sometimes begins with my eyes.
