Basic Chowder With Variations

3 lg Potatoes
1 lg Onion
2 cn Evaporated milk
1 qt Stock or water
2 oz Salt pork (or 2 tb. butter)
Salt and pepper optional white wine bay leaf parsley thyme

Peel and dice potatoes and put them on to boil in salted water or stock to cover. Peel and dice the onion.

If you use salt pork, cut it into 1/4" pieces, and cook in a frying pan over low heat until enough fat is rendered to saute the onions. Remove salt pork pieces from the pan and cook the onions in the rendered fat. When the onions are transluscent, add them to the cooked potatoes. (the potatoes are ready when you can bite into them, and they are still firm. Do not overcook them).

Return the salt pork bits to the frying pan and continue to cook them until they are brown and crispy. Reserve them for garnishing the chowder. If you prefer, use butter or margarine to saute the onions.

The milk should be added just before serving and brought to heat. Do not boil.
