For the Corn Chowder:

  • 4 cups corn kernels (from 4-5 ears of corn),reserve cobs for stock
  • 4 oz (4 slices) bacon, chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely diced (1 1/2 cups)

  • 2-3 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Chives, chopped, to garnish


How to Make Corn Stock:

  • Cut the corn kernels from the cobs and set them aside for later use in the chowder. Place the corn cobs in a stockpot.
  • Add 4 cups of broth, 1 1/2 cups of milk, and 1 cup of cream to the stockpot with the corn cobs. Bring the mixture to a boil,then reduce the heat and let it simmer uncovered for 20 minutes while you make the chowder.

  • Add sliced potatoes, 4 cups of corn kernels, 2 teaspoons of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the pot.
