Summery Corn Chowder

Summery Corn Chowder

Summer means a bumper crop of great produce, which also means corn chowder. (Is it just me who can’t resist calling it chow-dah?) I tend to like soups that are busy - not meaning complicated, but crowded with veggies and herbs. This chowder is thick with not only delicious sweet corn but lots of great, seasonal produce. It’s thick and alive with flavor and texture. By the way, if you’d rather not mess with fresh corn, this can easily be made with frozen corn: Just use about seven cups of kernels. This makes A LOT; feel free to halve the recipe if you’re not keen on lots of tasty leftovers.
