Delicious corn N Sausage chowder is perfect for a tasty fall soup. Use up your fresh corn and vegetables from the garden, or buy fresh, in-season, organic produce. Either way, this nutritionally Balanced, Gluten-Free corn chowder will warm your tummy with delicious nutrients in the cooler fall evenings.
For some reason, our garden gave us lots of challenges this year. The corn…nothing! The stalks were late, small and unproductive. Other than a few straggly ears. We had a bust of corn this year. Dave thinks he used bad seed.
Our food bill drops dramatically in August, September, and October right on into winter. We adjust our diet to fit what’s harvested out in the garden and greenhouse this time of year. Even with our reduced harvest the year, we still get a breather on the food bill right now!
Entire meals come from the garden and freezer. We cut back on heavy, expensive meats and go for the lighter, vegetable-based, meals. All it’s costing us is the time to go pick the produce and the energy to make the meals…And some meat. We don’t raise our own meat animals anymore 🙂
Soups are a delicious way to combine many flavors from the garden in unique ways that make each soup special.
This soup looks REALLY yellow due to the Turmeric in the recipe. That color is a good thing. Turmeric is so healthy!
Corn N Sausage Chowder Recipe Notes:
This is a sweet soup due to the corn and carrots. Adding the turmeric helps increase the savory aspects of this recipe. That gives this chowder a nice savory flavor and a rich yellow color to enhance the corn. Wonderful combination! Turmeric is very healthy too! This recipe is a complete meal. You need nothing else for a nutritionally sound lunch or dinner!
If you don’t care for a spicy soup switch the sausage to nonspicy, or use bacon or ham. So many things that you can do with this lovely corn chowder harvest recipe! Try serving this chowder with Mexican cornbread. Delicious!
