Fresh Corn Chowder loaded with summer corn at its peak of freshness. If you love the comfort of Clam Chowder, this corn chowder recipe is sure to become a new favorite. This crowd-pleasing soup is perfect for entertaining on cool summer nights.

Corn Chowder Video Tutorial:

Corn chowder is quite a treat when fresh corn is abundant. We love to use both the kernels and the stripped cobbs for sweet corn flavor. This corn chowder has the creamy richness of a Potato Soup and the addition of tender corn and bacon makes every bite memorable.

Ingredients for Potato Corn Chowder:

The ingredients here are simple pantry and refrigerator staples that come together to make the best pot of soup.

  • Corn: on the cob is best so you can utilize the kernels and the corn milk from the husks (see below for fresh corn substitutions).
  • Potatoes: we use Yukon gold potatoes for their tender waxy texture which is perfect for a chowder.
  • Carrot, Celery, and Onion: this trio is critical to adding flavor and we use them in just about every soup recipe.
  • Bacon: Sauteeing the bacon adds and then cooking the veggies in the bacon grease adds wonderful flavor and we use the cooked bacon to garnish the soup. No one will resist that bacon topping!
  • Chicken Broth, Milk & Cream: These are the base of the corn stock. We simmer the shucked cobbs in this combination for a deeply delicious chowder base.
  • Cayenne Pepper: this simple seasoning is all you need plus salt and black pepper of course.

How to Easily Remove Corn Silk:

After the corn is shucked, it’s important to remove the silk threads for the smoothest consistency. The easiest way to remove corn silk is to brush the corn with a firm bristled brush or even a clean toothbrush. The bristles catch the silk and it comes off quickly and easily.

Ingredients for Corn Chowder with fresh corn, potatoes, broth, milk, cream, bacon

What is Corn Stock?

Using the whole cob of corn will give you the best-flavored corn stock. Allowing the stripped cobs to simmer for 20 minutes with the broth, cream, and milk draws out every bit of rich and sweet flavor from the corn. After discarding the cobs, you are left with really delicious corn stock.

Time-Saving Tip: set the corn broth to cook at the same time you are making the chowder.

How to Make Corn Chowder:

Once the corn stock is made, the steps for making corn chowder are simple. Watch the video tutorial above and you will be a pro in no time.

  1. Sautee bacon in a dutch oven until crisps and renders fat. Remove bacon to a plate.
  2. Sautee veggies (onion, celery, and carrot) in the bacon grease until softened.
  3. Add potatoes and corn kernels and season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  4. Add corn stock into the pot and simmer until potatoes are tender.
  5. Serve in warm bowls garnished with bacon and chives.

When Corn is Not In Season:

Fresh corn on the cob and especially local produce will give this chowder the best flavor. For winter corn chowder or when fresh corn is not available, try these instead:

  • Frozen Corn: frozen is usually produced at the peak of freshness so it will work and will save you some time. Since you won’t have the cobs for making corn stock, add a 15 oz can of creamed corn for a tastier broth.
  • Canned Corn: Use (1) 15 oz can corn and (1) 15 oz can creamed corn. Add the liquid ingredients at step 3 without pre-cooking them. The liquid from the canned corn will add a boost of corn flavor.

Ingredients

For the Corn Stock:

For the Corn Chowder:

  • 4 cups corn kernels (from 4-5 ears corn) reserve cobs for stock
  • 4 oz (4 slices) bacon, chopped
  • 1 large onion finely diced (1 1/2 cup)
  • 1 large carrot cut into 1/4" dice (1 cup)
  • 3 stalks celery finely diced (1 cup)
  • 1 lb Yukon potatoes 3 medium, peeled and cut into 1/4" thick pieces
  • 2-3 tsp sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Chives chopped, to garnish

Instructions

How to Make Corn Stock:

  1. Cut the kernels from the cobs and set kernels aside for making chowder.* Place the bare cobs in a stockpot.  

  2. Add 4 cups broth, 1 1/2 cups milk, and 1 cup cream to pot. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer un-covered 20 minutes while making the chowder. Use tongs to remove and discard cobs before using corn stock in step 3. 

How to Make Corn Chowder:

  1. Place a 5 Qt dutch oven over medium/high heat. Add chopped bacon and cook stirring occasionally until browned. Remove bacon bits with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  2. In the same pot, add chopped onion, celery and carrot to the bacon fat and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft (7-8 min).

  3. Add sliced potatoes, 4 cups corn kernels, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Pour corn stock into the pot, bring to a light boil then simmer uncovered 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste**. Ladle into bowls and garnish with reserved bacon and chopped chives.

Recipe Notes

*After cutting the corn off the cobs, remove as much of the silk threads as possible to give your finished chowder a smooth consistency.

**Corn can have varying degrees of sweetness, if your corn is super sweet, you can add a little more salt to balance the sweetness.

FOR A CREAMIER SOUP: transfer 1/4 of the soup to a blender and blend until smooth then stir it into the rest of your chowder.

    Recipes I’ve come across that instruct cutting corn off the cob often indicate 1) using the kernels alone for cooking and eating and/or 2) scraping the cob down with a knife, which releases some more of the “corn milk” to make creamed corn. I was expecting you to suggest this step after the cobs simmered to include the hidden milk and the tidbits of corn left in the cob.
    I was surprised and almost stunned to see you throw those cobs away before using the rest of what may be really yummy additions to this chowder. Let me know if you try this and whether you like the results.

    Made the corn chowder with frozen corn and leftover potatoes from Christmas dinner. I also used panchetta (replaced the bacon)that I needed to use. Added a bit more salt that indicated. It was great. Fresh corn would have been my choice if in season. Great recipe. I will try again in the summer. Thanks.

      Hi Barbara, I have not tried that yet to advise but I think it is worth experimenting with. It could be delicious if you just add chicken pieces and a little bit more seasoning since it already has broth.

    Delicious soup! Everyone loved it! One small change I made was to decrease the cream to 1/2 cup and then, when soup was ready, put about 1/3 of the soup into my high-speed blender, blended it until creamy, and then poured it back with the rest of the soup. Made the soup super creamy and tasty but with less fat. So good!

      Hi Carolyn, If using canned corn, you can just add the can of creamed corn and can of corn and if you prefer more corn, you can add another can of corn which would put it closer to the amount of corn in the recipe. I hope you love the corn chowder!

      Hi Hilda, I would suggest omitting the bacon and using oil to sautee the vegetables. Then use a vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and be sure to season to taste since the bacon does add a little saltiness to the recipe.

      Hi Rosemary, I haven’t tested it that way but my guess the cook time will be closer to 10 minutes in the instant pot if you do try it, but I think it’s worth an experiment and you could use the saute function to keep everything in the same pot! If you try it out, let me know how it goes.

    Yum! Corn on the cob at this time of year is hit or miss in upstate NY- but it was perfect for this chowder-so good!!! The only thing I did different is I didn’t peel the potatoes and added sherry to taste!! Sooooo good!

      Hi Kristen, follow the instructions in the section titled: “What if corn is not in season” – basically you don’t have to precook the liquid ingredients with the bare corn cobs in the liquid. You can just add all of the liquid ingredients with the cream of corn in step 3.

        Also I find choosing only a low sodium chicken broth works to have a less salty taste. Of course, it helps to continue to taste as you go in preparI got your soup.

      When this happens, the easiest solution is to “potato” it, peel a whole potato and place it whole into the soup/stew. Allow to simmer until the potato has soaked up enough of the salt, then remove and discard the potato.

    Love this recipe. We can’t get enough. I gave the recipe to my daughter and she had the same “problem” Since I first tried it at the peak of corn season I was able to blanch a quantity of corn for future batches. I cut the corn off the cobs and then froze the corn and the bare cobs so I can boil the cobs when making each batch for lots of flavour. I also chopped and precooked the bacon, saving a bit of bacon grease and froze the bacon and the grease in portions needed for the recipe. Now I’m fully prepared to whip up a batch of chowder in record time this winter.

    Hey Natasha, we made your corn chowder recipe and absolutely loved it! We had so much corn we doubled the recipe, I didn’t look it up until after I had discarded the cobs but in lieu of that, we took a magic bullet full of kernels and added some chicken stock to it and pureed the mixture and used it as part of our stock. Another change was 3 345 ml. cans of 2% evaporated canned milk instead of the milk and heavy cream. I put in about a tbsp of black pepper along with the cayenne. We put the bacon back in for the cook instead of using it as a garnish, other than that it was verbatim except maybe we went a little heavy on the carrot, onion, and celery, but not much! We let it sit overnight before having for lunch the next day…Delicious!!! Thanks very much.

    This corn chowder is perfection!!! Sweet from the corn…Smokey from the bacon fat…creamy from the milk….crunchy from the bacon…slightly crisp sweet corn…soft textured potatoes…healthy from SO many vegetables…decadent from the bacon and cream,,,filling and stick to your ribs goodness…but also a fairly light meal in a bowl. It took some time, especially since I doubled the recipe. But SO worth it!!!! I also highly recommend my under $10 OXO corn stripper from Amazon. That made zipping that corn off the cob easy and fun.

    I had 6 fresh ears of corn and found this recipe which did not require a lot of ingredients to have to run out to the grocery store. I used Pancetta instead of bacon, added 6 cups of corn, substituted 2% milk rather than white milk and it came out very good. I pureed 1/2 of the mixture in the food processor which added to a slight thickness to the broth. My husband loved it.

    Oh my gosh good. My Daughter/Granddaughter loved it.
    Same ingredients, a little more mild/chicken broth. I like lots of broth! Canned corn.
    Looked at other recipes, wondering why no one used celery.
    And Cayenne is pretty much my Favorite spice. Adds a nice kick to just about everything.
    Oh,I always freeze corn chowder. Works fine.
    Best recipe ever!!

    Mmmmmmmmm! So good! I followed the recipe but added a couple things. I love a thick hardy soup so I did blend as it said too but I mixed up 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and about 1/2 of water in a glass and poured it in while boiling and also added a handful of shredded cheese and it is SO GOOD!!!

    Delicious!! Love the bite from the cayenne pepper and black pepper.
    I used diced ham instead of bacon because I had leftover ham from the holidays, and frozen corn so I just started with some olive oil instead of bacon grease and added broth ingredients after cooking the vegetables instead of boiling ahead of time. I blended about 1/3 of the corn with a cup of broth in the blender before adding to the soup. I also added about a cup of grated cheddar at the end. Loved this soup, it will be a winter staple!!

    Hi Natasha! I’m about to make this soup today using creamed corn and a can of corn. You said to add this at step 3….do you add an additional 4 cups of corn as noted in the steps? Do I still add chicken stock to the pot?

      December 14, 2018

      Hi Rose, I’m sorry I missed your comment earlier. If using canned corn, you can just add the can of creamed corn and can of corn and if you prefer more corn, you can add another can of corn which would put it closer to the amount of corn in the recipe. I hope you love the corn chowder!

    I made it and used the bacon as suggested to create the oil for the sauté, but didn’t throw the pieces in at the end because I cooked the bacon a little too much. In the past I have always put cheddar cheese in my corn chowder, which I did in this recipe. It came out awesome!

    So, if you’d put 1/4 of the soup in a blender BE AWARE that it will blow up all over the kitchen and on you. My arm and my face just had 180 degree corn chowder poured all over it and is burnt to pieces! Be careful, but I did not know this. And the top was on the blender. I guess the heat caused it to explode but if this helps one person not to burn themselves then this post is worthwhile.

        Hi Maria, I have not experienced milk curdling. That seems odd since there is nothing acidic to make it curdle. It could happen if you are substituting with a different kind of milk possibly or adding something else?

      Will be adding extra bacon 🥓:)

      My boyfriends mother has made this a few times, doubling the recipe for plenty of dinner and lunch/leftovers the next day.

      I always get excited when I see her have the bacon laying out too thaw by the produce and potatoes …. that means Corn chowder time!!
