HOW DO YOU MAKE A CHOWDER?
There are various chowder recipes out there from Clam Chowder, Vegetable Chowder or even Ham Chowder. The base of this usually starts with sautéed vegetables (if you are including them), a liquid such as milk, broth or water, meat and then a cream and thickener.
- For this recipe we started with onions and sausage and sautéed them.
- We then added water, potatoes and our spices. Bring that to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
- We then add corn, cream corn and evaporated milk and simmer again. Finally we add our slurry which is made of cornstarch and water.
You can make this Corn Chowder recipe as thick or as thin as you’d like. The more slurry you add the thicker it will be. If you like a really soupy chowder then you can omit the slurry altogether, but in reality who likes a soupy chowder!
We love the freshness of this Corn Chowder recipe so much that it is on our menu almost every other week! We just cant get enough. This is one of my husbands favorite recipes of all time. Honestly it is good for any time of the year but we usually make it in the Spring and Summer months.
