Ingredients

  • 6 ears fresh white sweet corn, kernels not too closely removed and each cob cut into three pieces
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 quart Chicken Stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 scallions
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

Place the corn cobs in a soup kettle. Add the milk and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.

Remove the cobs and add the corn kernels, salt, and sugar. Continue to simmer as the corn cooks. With a small spoon, scrape away the pulp from the cobs and add it to the chowder.

Chop the scallions, including most of the green tops, and briefly sauté them in 4 tablespoons of the butter.

Set aside. In a small bowl, blend the remaining 1 tablespoon butter with the flour. Whisk the flour mixture into the chowder. Season with pepper to taste and the cayenne and cook for another 15 minutes.

Fold in the scallion mixture. Taste for seasoning and serve in heated soup plates.

DELICIOUS! This recipe was great, but I did make a few changes. The first was I thought it was a bit watery for a chowder, so I added a few sprinkles of flour at the end to thicken it up a little. I also was looking for something a little heartier and I diced up about 2 and a half cups of potatoes (tiny little cubes) and added them at the same time as the kernels of corn. It was DELICIOUS! Love this recipe!
