7.30.16 I had really sweet summer corn which made this chowder really good. Fresh corn is the only way to go on this folks, so put that frozen corn back into the freezer. The chowder wasn’t quite as thick as I would have preferred, so I did add additional flour to get it to the consistency I like. Next time, I’ll cut the potatoes into larger pieces, maybe 1/2”. I know that’ll add some time to partially cook them, but I think I’ll like that better, and the chowder’s eye appeal will improve, as well. I used fat free half-and-half, and it worked well. I think crumbled crisp bacon would be a nice garnish. KandyKates, enjoyed your chowder! Read More

I followed the recipe except used low fat half and half. It turned out well the wife and daughter having seconds. I personally found it a bit bland but a few drops of tobacco gave it a nice tingle. Visually the color could be more appetizing and next time would cook the potatoes less as they disintegrate. Worth a try. Read More

Excellent! I added 1/2 tablespoon of flour. I used 1 large russet potato and 1 medium. Also eliminated green pepper, substituted chopped carrots. Will definitely make it again Read More

This soup turned out great for me. I used corn I had blanched and frozen, so it was very sweet and tasty. I followed the recipe, and it tastes great! I let it simmer a while longer because my peppers were too crunchy, but other than that, I followed to the letter. Read More
