Corn Chowder

4 ounces bacon
2 TBSP butter
2 leeks
2 TSP thyme
4 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 bay leaf
3 potatoes
2 cups corn

Slice leeks (smooth/pale part only - no leaves). push out the layers of each round slice to make rings. place rings in water to soak (removes all possible dirt). cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces. chop bacon. drain leeks. put bacon in a medium pot, and cook until crispy. add butter, leeks, broth, cream, thyme sprig, bay leaf, and potatoes to pot. simmer until the potatoes are tender. add corn. cook for 5 more minutes.

if it's not thick enough to your liking, you can add a bit of corn starch mixed with water to thicken it, or wait for a few minutes.
