    Perfect Chowders

    A chowder is a thick, rich, chunky soup usually made with a white sauce base though Manhattan chowders have a tomato base. Originally, it was a fishermen’s stew made with seafood but today, vegetable chowders are common such as corn chowder and potato chowder.

    Chowders typically have five parts:

    The vegetables or seafood, the focal ingredient of the soup.
    Ancillary ingredients which may include cream, diced onions, bacon, or herbs.

    The cooking liquid—usually broth or stock.
    A thickening agent—usually cornstarch, flour, or potatoes.
    Seasonings including salt and pepper.

    There are two main methods for making chowder based on how the thickening agent is incorporated into the soup. In the first, the flour is stirred into melted fat or butter in the pan and cooked until it is golden color. The stock is slowly added, stirring with a whisk to remove any lumps.

    In the second method, the starch is added after the soup is assembled. A small amount of the liquid is added to the starch and the starch is dissolved in the liquid to make a paste. More liquid is added to the paste until is thinned to a sauce. The sauce is whisked back into the soup and the soup is reheated until it starts to bubble. As the starch approaches boiling, it gelatinizes and thickens the liquid.
