This is how I have made corn chowder for years and it is good, stick to your ribs , comfort food.The only thing I do different is in the prep. After removing bacon from pan, add onion and potato and cook on low till lightly brown. Then add water and simmer. The potato will soak up and distribute the bacon taste. Great soup.
