A chowder is a type of soup or stew, usually thickened with flour, that is made with milk or cream and diced or whole potatoes. Corn chowder is a variation of the dish that includes corn as one of its main ingredients.
The origin of the word chowder is unknown, but it is thought to be derived from the French word chaudiere, which means cooking pot. The first recorded use of the word in English was in the early 18th century.
The first known recipe for corn chowder appeared in The New England Cookery, by Amelia Simmons, in 1796. This early version of the dish was made with salt pork, potatoes, onions, and milk.
When making corn chowder, start by sautéing some diced onion and celery in butter until they are softened. Then add in the corn, potatoes, and chicken stock. Simmer until the potatoes are tender. Once the potatoes are cooked, add in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Finally, stir in the crumbled bacon and freshly chopped parsley. Serve the chowder hot with a sprinkle of freshly grated cheese on top. For a creamy chowder, blend some of the cooked potatoes and add them back into the soup. This will help thicken the chowder and give it a rich and creamy texture. Enjoy!
