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.
