Recipe by Bec6206

During sweet corn season, you can make this chowder using fresh ears of corn. Just omit the frozen corn and use a sharp knife to remove the kernels from 2 medium ears of corn.

We added 1/2 cup sharp cheddar to kick the flavor up a notch. We still ended up having to salt it a little, but overall it was an enjoyable dinner. We will probably make it again and continue to tweak it a bit.
