HELP...What do I do?

The cream (half and half) separated in my Corn Chowder...can we still eat it? can I save if? or should I toss it and start again?

I have never made chowder before so any tips would be a big help...

It probably won't affect the flavor-maybe add a little cornstarch or flour to thicken it?

It's fine to eat. That happens with cream or cheese if it's added when the chowder is too hot, or if it gets too hot after adding it. I always add it at the VERY end, when it is off the heat and right before serving.

I never use cream in my cream soup/chowders. I always use milk and cornstarch. I don't thin you notice the difference (except mine is healthier). Also it's much more forgiving with heat. Here's the link to my corn chowder to give you an idea http://fletchingtonfarms.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/recipes/

Hope that helps.
