When I was a kid, one of my favourite soups was corn chowder. My mom made it using canned creamed corn, green peppers, onions, potatoes and milk. It was simple, delicious and comforting. I took the basic concept and dressed it up a little with fresh corn and added some red peppers, a hint of jalapeno, some garlic and fresh thyme. It’s a great way to use up corn on the cob and can be a summery starter or a hearty meal on its own. You can add some protein such as shellfish, chicken or ham if you’d like. It can also be made vegetarian by using vegetable stock in place of chicken in the base. Serve the chowder with fresh bread or biscuits.
