  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • ½ green pepper, diced
  • ½ red pepper, diced (these are festive)
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped (with leaves if you wish)
  • 1 large carrot diced
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 4 cups fresh corn kernels **
  • 3 potatoes, diced to ½ inch
  • 1/2 quart chicken bone stock
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream (or half-n-half)
  • Corn stock
  • ½ tsp cracked pepper
  • 6 pieces of bacon crisped and crumbled
  • Sour cream (garnish)
  • Green onions (garnish)



  • When you cut the kernels off the corn, put the cob aside.
  • Put the milk, cream, and broth into a large stock pan
  • Add the corn cobs.
  • Simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cobs.
  • Set aside.


    ** Frozen or canned corn may be used instead

    • For this recipe, you need a pot that will hold five quarts.
    • Crisp up the bacon in the pot.
    • Remove it, but leave the fat.
    • Add butter to the pot. Saute the onions, celery, sweet peppers, and carrots for 8 minutes (the onion should be soft)
    • Add the cubed potatoes, corn kernels, salt, crumbled bacon, and pepper.
    • Add the bone broth and stock.
    • Bring everything to a boil, then simmer until the potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes)
    • Serve with a dollop of cream cheese and chopped chives.

    Tips for Success:

    • This recipe benefits from sitting in the refrigerator overnight, then re-heating. The time marries the flavor.
    • If you want your soup thicker, just take ½ cup of the chowder out and toss it in the blender. Return the slurry to the pot.
