When I canned Chicken Corn Chowder, I mentioned Grow & Preserve’s soup video. I’ve also mentioned how much I love having soup in jars, especially on busy days when I would be grasping for something for dinner if I didn’t have food in the freezer and in jars that’s ready to heat and serve.
Yesterday I worked outside so much of the day and then played with (or acted as referee) for Oscar and Cooper. I had runzas in the freezer so I took those out to defrost and rise and grabbed a jar of the Chicken & Corn Chowder. I used turkey because I had a turkey breast in the freezer that needed to be cooked.
This was dinner and the soup was so delicious! I had made 5 quarts of it and need to make more.
I started with the jar on the left, dumped it all in a pot. I added a bit of cornstarch to cold water, mixed that in with the soup, let it thicken a bit and added maybe 1-1/2 cups of milk. I didn’t have to add any more seasoning. After we both had soup and runzas for dinner, there was enough soup left for at least one of us to have it for dinner, maybe both of us to have a small amount of soup along with a sandwich or a salad.
If you like cream based soups, this one is really good!
