Stove-top Chowder

Stove-top Chowder

Summer is a lovely time of all our favourite veggies coming into season. Take advantage of the freshness with our delicious Stove-top Chowder recipe, made with creamy Cravendale milk


Step 1
  • Heat your butter in a large pot over a medium heat and add your bacon, onion, garlic and celery. Fry and stir every now and then for 10 mins.
Step 2
  • Add your flour to the pan and stir before slowly adding your stock whilst stirring to fully incorporate.
Step 3
  • Bring to the boil before adding your potatoes, corn kernels and bay leaves. Bring to the boil again and then simmer for 25 mins.
Step 4
  • Once the potatoes are soft, transfer them to a food processor and blitz until smooth before pouring them back into the pan and heating gently over a low heat.
Step 5
  • Add your paprika, Cravendale and honey and stir. Taste and season before finishing with Cheddar and chives and serving into bowls for a comforting yet summery dish that makes the most of fresh produce!

If you don't have corn-on-the-cob, frozen or canned corn drained will work just fine!
