Slow Cooker Corn & Potato Chowder with Ham

 

Let your slow cooker do the work for you with this creamy, comforting chowder, loaded with sweet corn, hearty potatoes, and flavorful ham. Winter is about to wear me out, y'all. One day (today), it's 30°. By the weekend, it's supposed to get up to 80°. Every time we get a taste of spring it freezes again, and every time we resolve ourselves to more winter weather, warm temperatures and sunny skies tease us, if only for a few days.

What you will need

2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

16 ounces (about 4 cups) frozen corn

1 1/2 cups diced ham

1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme)

4 cups chicken broth or stock

Freshly ground black pepper

1 to 2 cups half-and-half
