This is a corn chowder recipe which is actually adopted from our restaurant's famous conch chowder...that one's a trade secret, but we find that when you want the -comfort food-, this recipe should do nicely for your family, as it does ours! I simplified this recipe in many ways to be home-friendly and use the least amount of preparation, steps, and cooking dishes possible -- when we are at home, we don't have the benefit of a paid dishwasher! One note on this recipe -- Among other things, I cut out the par-boiling of the potatoes, so just make sure you -carefully- watch the cooking time on the potatoes, and tweak the recipe according to your preference of softness -- and we also like the skin-on approach when we are feeling particularly homey ;)
