Homemade Goodness *Corn Chowder*

Corn is in full season right now so stock up on it. I picked up corn today at The Pumpkin Patch 6/$1. Can you believe it? Crazy low prices. I bought 30, brought them home and then realized that I had to somehow do something with it all. lol. Yikes! Here are a few idea's:
1. Cut corn off, lay on a cookie sheet, freeze it, then put in a freezer safe container.
2. Freeze whole corn as is in freezer safe containers.
3. Eat it.

We decided to make corn chowder tonight and it was amazing. My kids ate it up so fast. My husband even enjoyed it and that's saying a lot. He doesn't like soup at all but since this was so thick, it really wasn't soup. So try this out and enjoy!

Corn Chowder

2 1/2 cups corn (cooked or not frozen or can is fine)
2 cups of diced potato's
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup onion diced (or green onion)
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 hot water
2 cups of milk (or reconstituted milk)
1 tbsp flour
Combine all ingredients into one big pot except milk and flour. Cook until potato's are tender. Add milk and flour and let cook for 10 minutes on low heat. Let set for 3 minutes and serve. Serves 4-6 people.
Garnish with shredded cheese or green onions.
