Corn and Crab Chowder
Yield: 4 Servings
4 tb Unsalted butter
1 md Onion, chopped
1 Clove garlic, chopped
3 c Fresh corn kernels
1/4 c Water

2 c Whole milk
3/4 c Lump crabmeat, about 4 ounces

Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook over medium heat,
stirring often until soft, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a blender and add corn kernels,
water and cornstarch. Blend until smooth.
Melt remaining butter in same pan. Add puree, and cook over medium heat, stirring
constantly, until mixture thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add milk and heat to a simmer. Cover
