Summer Corn Chowder  
1 lbs spicy Italian sausage (I use chicken sausage)

1 TBSP canola or olive oil, for cooking
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 TBSP flour
2 TBSP cumin
8 cups chicken broth
4 yellow potatoes, unpeeled and diced
2 cans sweet kernel corn, drained
2 cups milk or 1 cup half & half (I use fat free)
1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper  

-Remove the sausage from its casings into a large stockpot that has been drizzled with oil and set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and celery and cook, breaking the meat up, until onion is translucent and the sausage is cooked.
-Add the flour and cumin and cook, stirring, for another minute. Stir in the broth, add the potatoes and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for 20-25 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
-Stir in the corn, and the milk or cream if you’re using it, and allow the chowder to return to a gentle simmer. DO NOT boil.  Add the cheese and stir just until it melts.
