Robbie's Soup and Chowder Recipes
With the arrival of fall and cooler temperatures I enjoy serving soups and chowders and all the family enjoy eating them. Here are two great recipes. I think most chowders and soups taste better the next day, so I often prepare in advance and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors mingle. For those not familiar with Wondra it is a flour manufactured by Gold Medal and is sometimes called instant flour and is reported to make flakier baked items and to dissolve quicker. See the recipe at the bottom to make your own Wondra flour, which many like to do as they do not feel they will use a large bag of the product.

Ham Brocooli and Potato Chowder Recipe

1/2 to 1 lb. ham, 1/4-inch cubes
1/4 cup butter
2 cups half and half
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large or 2 medium onions
1 leek, minced (optional)
1 32 oz box chicken or vegetable broth
pinch each of thyme and sage
1 bay leaf

3 tablespoons flour or 2 tablespoons Wondra
1/4 tsp. pepper (white preferred)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 lb. shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese (optional)
2 large potatoes, peeled, 1/2-inch cubes
1 10 oz. pkg frozen corn (thawed)
1 10 oz. pkg chopped frozen broccoli (thawed)

In a large Dutch oven or soup pot, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Sauté onion until light browned and translucent; add ham cubes and minced leek, if using. Stir over high heat for several minutes. Add garlic and saute over medium heat for another minute or two. Add a pinch of thyme and sage (a little goes a long way).

Stir in chicken or vegetable broth. Add potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Add bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer.

While stirring with a whisk, sprinkle in flour, stirring until smooth. Add garlic and onion powder. Simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in thawed broccoli and corn. Continue to cook over low heat until all vegetables are tender.

Combine sour cream and half and half. Simmer until heated through; add remaining butter. Sprinkle in cheese (optional) and simmer, stirring until cheese has melted (just a few minutes). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Remove bay leaf. Serve with buttered biscuits or chowder crackers.

Cooks Note: Some of the corn may be mashed to thicken the soup. The frozen corn can be substituted with cream-style corn, if desired.

Wondra Flour Substitute
Yield 1 cup

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Sift flour and cornstarch three times. Store in air tight container. If recipe calls for 1 cup Wondra remove 3 tablespoons. This will aerate the flour and the weight will be right for the recipe.
