Fresh Corn Chowder
Why This Recipe Works
While developing our corn chowder recipe, we discovered that a combination of rendered salt pork and butter gave us a better-tasting soup. To pump up the corn flavor, we added grated corn and corn milk (which comes from scraping the cobs with the back of a knife). Using chicken broth rather than water as the base gave our chowder better body. And adding the corn kernels at the very end prevented overcooking.
