2-½ cups water

2 cups cubed peeled red or russet potatoes, (½-inch)

2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed

teaspoons salt

1 dash of white pepper

3 tablespoons flour

Instructions:
Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat.

Add in the flour and whisk until smooth and a roux forms (2 minutes).

Add onions and celery and saute 5 minutes until soft but not brown.

Add water, potatoes, corn kernels, creamed corn, sugar, salt and pepper. Using a wire whisk, whisk until smooth.

Cover and simmer until potatoes are barely tender, about 30 minutes.
