AUGUST: Summer Squash Chowder


2 T. butter
1/4 cup of olive oil
6 medium summer squash diced or small pieces
6 ears of corn , shucked, , remember to scrape the milk into the bowl as well
1 large spanish onion, diced
1/2 lb turkey bacon sliced
water and chicken stock to cover
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped  ( optional )
Salt and Pepper
2 cups of heavy cream

In a medium casserole-shaped pot, saute the onion in the oil and butter until they begin to wilt.
Add the squash and corn, toss, coating with the fat, and let simmer for a few minutes until they begin to soften.

Add the stock, water, cilantro, and bacon. Cook until soft.

Correct seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the heavy cream and heat to serve.

I made this again last week when there were FRESH LIMA BEANS in the market.  I added two cups of shelled beans to the recipe.  It just added another dimension.

You may also cook the bacon first with the onions , butter and oil.
