"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
1/8-pound bacon
4- 6 ears fresh corn scraped into kernels
3 cans creamed corn
1 large onion
3 fresh carrots
1 small stalk lovage or 3 small stalk celery
1 tomato
1 small zucchini (if you have too many in the garden)
4-6 smallish to medium fresh new potatoes with skins on and washed
3 cans of evaporated milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Sauté the bacon on medium heat being careful not to burn or brown, add onion and celery or lovage and cook till wilted. Add tomato and then carrots cook for 5- 10 minutes on medium to low heat so as not to brown. Add cut up potatoes in cubes and then add just enough hot water to cover potatoes. Be very sparing, as you don’t want too much water in here just enough to cook the potatoes. When potatoes are almost done (7-10 minutes) add corn scraped off the cob and zucchini if you have it and cook several minutes more. Then add creamed corn and evaporated milk so you get a chowder consistency, salt and pepper to taste and heat on low to medium for at least 20 minutes more being careful not to boil. Serve with chowder crackers.
