how to make Smoked bacon, leek and butter bean chowder ?
Crusty bread is essential when tucking in to Debbie Major's hearty chowder recipe made using Jersey milk, smoked bacon, butter beans and leeks.

INGREDIENTS
50g butter
350g leeks, thickly sliced
200g British free-range smoked bacon lardons/strips
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 litre Jersey, Guernsey or full-cream milk
2 bay leaves
50g plain flour
200ml good quality chicken stock
2 x 400g cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
100ml single or double cream
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

METHOD
01.Melt half the butter in a large pan. Add the sliced leeks, stir well to coat with butter and season lightly. Cover and cook gently for 3 minutes until just tender and still bright green. Tip the leeks into a bowl and set aside.
02.Return the pan to a medium heat, add the bacon lardons and oil, then fry gently until the lardons have released some of their fat. Increase the heat to high and fry a little more briskly until lightly golden. Add the rest of the butter and the onion to the pan, cover and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes until the onion is soft but not browned. Meanwhile, gently heat the milk and bay leaves together in a separate pan.
03.Stir the flour into the bacon and onions, then cook for 1 minute. Gradually stir in the stock, then stir in the warm milk and bring almost to the boil. Add the butter beans and season to taste, then simmer for 5 minutes.
04.Remove and discard the bay leaves, stir in the leeks and cream, then bring back to a simmer. Stir in the parsley and season to taste. Serve in bowls with fresh homemade bread.
