Ham, Potato, and Corn Chowder

I love corn chowder, and I love ham, and potatoes are always good. So of course this soup is now near the top of my favorites list. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

 

Ham, Potato, and Corn Chowder
Prep time: 10 minutes

1 tsp fresh thyme
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken broth
2 cup milk (2%)
2 to 3 medium potatoes (russet or other hard potato)
1/4 to 1/3 pre-cooked ham (I recommend honey ham)

Heat oil or butter in large soup pot. Add onion, carrots, celery and saute until starting to soften. Add garlic, thyme, and flour, and cook until flour is lightly browned.

Slowly add broth, deglazing pan as you go. Add milk, potatoes, and ham, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked. Add corn and simmer until corn is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
