Recipe: Bacon and Corn Chowder

With the Spring season still bringing rough and stormy weather I couldn't resist making a bowl of soup over the weekend ... probably the last one until next Winter!

I found a Bacon and Sweet Corn Chowder recipe from my magazine stash and it's the kind of soup you can make from cupboard ingredients and leave out the bacon if you want to go vegetarian. This soup was really thick and creamy and I've been serving up a small bowl as a starter before our main meal every night this week and it's gone down a treat, with some crispy bacon bits sprinkled on top for extra taste. Oh soup weather I'm going to miss you! 

Bacon and Corn Chowder

A few rashers of bacon, chopped

2. Add flour and cook stirring for 1 minute.
3. Add potato, celery, milk, stock and bring to the boil.
