My grandmother and mother made this dish to warm their families during the cold winter months. Nothing chased away a chill like this chowder! Now when it's cold and damp outside, I make this dish and think of these days. Everyone in my household enjoys the delicious warmth of a steaming bowl of Corn Chowder.
