DIRECTIONS

  • Fry bacon until crisp.
  • Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and drain; set aside.
  • In a 4-quart saucepan or pot, heat 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat and add chopped onion.
  • Cook over medium heat until onion is translucent.
  • Add broth and cubed potatoes to pan (add some salt if you are using a less salty broth).
  • Bring to a simmer, cover and allow to cook for about 10 minutes (this is for 1 inch cubes of potatoes).
  • Stir in corn and heat through.
  • Add cream and heat through again.
  • If you prefer a thicker chowda, mix 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour with 1/2 cup of milk and shake until dissolved.
  • Add a little at a time while the chowda is simmering until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Serve with crumbled bacon on top, a good dose of freshly ground pepper, and for those of you who want true authenticity, add a dollop of butter to the top of the steaming bowl.
