"Fresh corn gives wonderful appeal to this recipe I got from my sister," relates Muriel Lerdal of Humboldt, Iowa about the full-bodied soup she shares. "It's also satisfying on a chilly fall or winter day, using frozen or canned corn."

"Was a nice, easy chowder to make. I did substitute the cream of mushroom (husband is allergic) for a can of cream of celery. I also only cooked my potatoes about 2/3 of the way and let everything simmer until done. This was a great was to use up some of my leftover Christmas ham. We topped the chowder with fresh grated cheddar, crispy bacon, chives, and fresh ground black pepper."

"Great fall time lunch! I did cheat on the potatoes, opting for a can of diced potatoes. Also used the entire can of cream of corn. Yummy! Teenagers choose to top theirs will peoper-jack cheese for a spicy kick."

"I like how simple this is! I garnished with a little shredded sharp cheddar (I live in WI, I can't help it!) and some fresh chopped chives."

"I made this chowder as soon as I got the magazine many, many years ago. In 1994 my husband and brother came in from a looong day of ice fishing and ate the whole thing! I had homemade fresh bread and they only ate 1 slice of it and wanted MORE chowder!!! And I agree w/them ~ it's EXCELLENT and should be published again! I make it quite often. (I also saw a similar recipe today that called for bacon instead of ham, but I won't try it) :D

DEFINITE FIVE STARS!!! (I'd give more if I could)
~Makes 2 Qts."
