Mimis Cafe Corn Chowder Recipe

Mimis Cafe has a special place in my heart.  We had a huge luncheon there after our wedding and it is the first meal we had after our first baby was born!  I love everything on their menu, especially this corn chowder!
Mimis Cafe Corn Chowder Recipe:
1/4 cup butter
6 Tablespoons chopped onion
3/4 cup diced celery
2 1/2 cups water
2 cups cubed, peeled russet potatoes
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 (14 ounce) can creamed corn
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 dash of white pepper
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups half and half creamDirections:

Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat.  Add in the flour and whisk until smooth and a roux forms (2 minutes).  Add onions and celery and saute 5 minutes until soft, but not brown.  Add water, potatoes, corn kernels, creamed corn, sugar, salt and pepper.  Whisk together until smooth.  Cover and simmer until potatoes are barely tender, about 30 minutes.  Add half and half and simmer uncovered until soup has thickened into a creamy consistency, about 15 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.(Recipe from Mimis Cafe)

    I saw this and I went to the store.I’ve never had it before but it sounded good. Just added the half and half and it already tastes yummy! Pinned this one to my tried and true board. Also known as “will make again” board. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was d-e-licious! Doubled the recipe to serve a group of 9 hungry college kids, served with biscuits and called it a meal. I did offer shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and scallions as toppers…I think next go around (and there will be one) I might try a few carrot shreds with the celery, just for color. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

    Thank you. I’m thrilled to have this recipe!I was wondering, if I freeze Mimi’s Corn Chowder in smaller portions will the chowder lose some of the flavor or will the consistency be altered upon reheating? I called Mimi’s Cafe. The wonderful server stated no change in flavor or consistency if reheated in the microwave, stirring every 2 minutes.
