Recipe Ingredients for Corn Chowder

4 cups milk, fat free
7 ears corn
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, large, yellow, diced
1 1/2 cups potatoes, finely diced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Salt and black pepper, to taste

Recipe Directions for Corn Chowder

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a low simmer.

  2. Meanwhile, cut the corn kernels from the cobs. To do this, stand each ear on its wide end. Use a serrated knife to saw down the length of the ear. Set kernels aside.

  3. When the milk is warm, add the cobs, and simmer 10 minutes.

  4. While the cobs simmer, heat the oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, potatoes and thyme, and sauté about 8 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender. Add the garlic, and sauté another minute.

  5. Remove the cobs from the milk, and discard them. Transfer the potato-and-onion mixture into the milk. Add the kernels, and simmer 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
