Submitted by Doris Stilger
4 medium red potatoes
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 C water
3 C milk
1 small onion
1/2 tsp sugar
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
1 C cubed cooked ham
Crushed red pepper flakes
(Karen S. added frozen corn to this to make a hearty Potato/ham/corn chowder!)
Peel potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes. Bring water to a boil in large saucepan. Add potatoes and cook until tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Set aside potatoes. Measure 1 cup cooking liquid, adding water if necessary; set aside.
Peel and finely chop onion. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion to saucepan; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent and tender, but not brown.
Add flour to saucepan; season with pepper flakes and black pepper to taste. Cook 3 to 4 min. Gradually add potatoes and reserved 1 C cooking liquid, milk, and sugar to onion mixture in saucepan; stir well. Add cheese and ham. Simmer over low heat 30 min, stirring frequently.
