My Mom loved chowders and made them from scratch. I'm not so talented and need to use prepared foods to make the same recipes that she made from bits of this and that. With corn ripe right now in the fields let's make some corn chowder to feed our inner souls.

Preparing the corn

In colonial days, corn was a staple and the farmers made use of it from eating it off the cob to taking the kernels off and using them in various other recipes.

The easiest way to husk corn without having to contend with all the silk is the cut off the heavy end of the ear. Then pull the leaves off the ear. This leaves the ear of corn free of the silk.
