ALABAMA CORN CHOWDER
This recipe is from Mary Boname, mother of Brian Fortinberry, owner of Front Range BBQ. It was published in her cookbook Top of the Range: A Recipe Collection.
1 pound smoked sausage (sliced one-inch thick)
2 medium white onions, chopped
3 stalks celery with leaves, sliced
2 Irish (red) potatoes, cleaned and diced to 1/4-inch
5 cups chicken stock
4 ears sweet corn, cut from cob
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
3 T. butter
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 c. chopped fresh parsley
To a large 6-quart Dutch Oven pot add the butter, onion and celery. Saute over medium heat one minute. Cover and simmer til onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add sausage, potatoes, corn, salt, pepper, thyme and enough chicken stock to cover vegetables completely. Bring to boil, cover, lower heat and simmer 30 minutes.
Add half-and-half and parsley; bring to almost a boil then turn heat off. Cover and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning before serving. Makes 10 one-and-one-half cup servings.
