Pumpkin Corn Chowder

 My daughter finds herself in amongst the many that love pumpkin. Not just the taste but the scent, wording pretty much anything that has to do with pumpkins. This is also the time of year that farmers here in Illinois and states surrounding us will be harvesting the crops. One of the many grown is corn. So it simply makes sense to combine both pumpkin and corn in a lovely meal that will fill one up. I hope you enjoy leave a comment please if you do try. 

½ cup diced pancetta

4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup diced onion
½ cup diced celery
1 cup diced carrots
1 quarts chicken or vegetable stock
1 ½ pounds diced pumpkin, see note
1 peeled and diced large Russet potato (1 ½ – 2 cups)
¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 15-ounce cans creamed corn
  • 1 pound frozen corn
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups heavy cream (one pint)
  • Optional toasted pumpkin seeds for garnish

  1. In a large pot, heat pancetta and 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat until pancetta is crisp, five to ten minutes.  Add garlic, onions, celery and carrot and cook 5 minutes.

  1. I can comment on almost any of the recipes I've glanced at on your website because you and I must cook the same recipes every week! This one however caught my attention because I can honestly say I've never assembled or tasted this but now absolutely plan to! This is a meal by itself. I'm in love with the ingredients and will add what's needed to buy for this upcoming weekend :-) Jenny visiting from .
