Creamy Corn Chowder 2

My daughter-in-law, Sara, loved this last time she was here so I told her I'd post it so she could have the recipe. When I made it this week , to take photos, Samuel got all excited, turns out it's his favorite too.
It is very tasty with the added kick of a touch of cayenne and garlic (of course) against the sweetness of corn and smoky turkey bacon.
1/2 pound smoky turkey bacon
1 large onion, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh or frozen corn
4 cups chicken broth
4 large potatoes, peeled, and diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cayenne
1teaspoon parsley, minced
1/2 teaspoon savory
salt +pepper to taste
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup 1/2 +1/2
Into a 4 quart heavy bottom pot snip the bacon into 1/2 inch bits with clean kitchen scissors.
Cook on medium high until it starts to brown on the edges then add the onion and butter.
Cook until the onion is tender.
Add the potato,
broth, garlic,
 corn, cayenne, parsley,
 savory, salt and pepper.
Let this simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Stir in the sour cream until there are no lumps and it's all melted into the broth then add the 1/2 & 1/2. Stir on medium heat until hot throughout.
Hot, creamy, hearty, perfect for a cold night or any time.
