Family Recipe Friday: Corn and Tomato Chowder

I love this soup – I’ve made it so many times I don’t even need the recipe. This recipe was given to me by my father,  who used to make it, and came from his father. Thanks for laminating it Dad/Mom! I’m sure glad because it would have fallen apart by now, look how worn it is.

Here’s the recipe:

Corn & Tomato Chowder

Saute – 1/2 tsp. grated onion
             1 cup kernel corn
             1-1/2 Tbls. shortening

Add – 1 Tblsp. flour and cook for three minutes
          1 pint tomatoes
1 cup water
          1-1/2 tsp. sugar
          1/2 tsp. salt
          dash of pepper and paprika

Cover and cook on low heat for thirty minutes. Just before serving, stir in 1/8 tsp. of baking soda and 1/2 cup of milk. Do not boil after this has been added. Serve immediately. Serves four.

Enjoy!

Thanks for reading!
