Hearty Corn Sausage Soup

I got this recipe a long time ago from a girlfriend who was originally from Vermont so this recipe has traveled far and wide. I make it very rarely but every once in a while I get a taste for it in the fall or winter. I thought I'd share it with you since today was one of those days.

1 lb of link sausage ( really half of that is plenty)
a few medium sized potatoes- skin on and cubed
1 cup - green peppers- chopped
1 cup - water
1 16 oz can of creamed corn
2 Cups - milk
2 Tbls flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tbls parsley
1 small onion-chopped

Cook sausage and cut into pieces
Drain all but 1 Tbls fat
Add fat to potatoes, pepper and water
Bring to a boil then cover and reduce to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Stir in corn, milk, and onions,
Add flour, salt , pepper and parsley.
Finally add sausage pieces, simmer uncovered until thickened, stir often as it will stick.
