Corn Chowder

I made this for the first time last night and both Eric and I really liked it. It is very similar to the Mimi's Cafe corn chowder and that is one of our favorites. This makes 4 servings.

Corn Chowder

2 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. chopped onion
1/3 cup diced celery
1 1/4 cup water
1 cup cubed potatoes
1 1/2 cup corn
1 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Dash pepper
1 1/2 Tbs. flour
1 pint Half and Half

Melt the butter in a large pot. Add celery and onion and saute for about five minutes. Add water, potatoes, corn, sugar, salt and pepper, making sure the water covers everything. Add more water if needed. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender. Whisk the flour into a 1/2 cup of the half and half. Stir the flour mixture into the soup. Add the remaining half and half and simmer until thickened and creamy- about fifteen minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
