Classic Corn Chowder Recipe

Chowder is a classic comfort food here in the Northeast, especially during cooler weather. Whenever I make a trip home to Pittsburgh, Mom has this simmering on the stove for me.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces each) cream-style corn
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the water, corn and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 16-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the milk, salt and pepper. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 8 servings (about 2 quarts).

"First time making corn chowder. I made this in the slow cooker today as we were home with yet another snow day.. I used baby potatoes cut into chunks. I added some cooked chopped bacon and used Chicken broth instead of water! I wanted this to be a little thicker so I added some flour at the end to thicken it up some. Kids loved it! I would also use less butter next time.."

"Since I only had one can of cream corn on hand, I added a cup of leftover chopped turkey to the soup. I also sauteed some celery with the onion and used a cup of heavy cream instead of 2 cups of milk. It was excellent!"

"This has become a "do-again" recipe in our house. Delicious! My husband loves it, as do my children (ages 7 and 4). It's very good, not hard to make, and tastes even better the next day. We all highly recommend it!"

"Have made this many times; which says a lot, considering I don't repeat recipes often. That being said, I haven't made it the same twice.

Turns out great with milk or a 12 oz can of evaporated milk. I normally add an extra potato, use broth instead of water, leave out the salt, and decrease the butter to 1-2 Tablespoons."
