Sweet Corn Chowder

Sweet Corn Chowder

This soup is an extra special treat for us.

Every fall I buy extra corn on the cob, cook it, cut it off the cob, and freeze it just so I can make this delicious sweet corn chowder.  So if you have some corn tucked away in your freezer pull it out and treat yourself to this creamy-loaded-with-corn soup that gets even sweeter on the second and third day after making it.  If you don’t have corn you’ve frozen you can also make it with store-purchased frozen corn.  It might not be as sweet but it will still be tasty.  We love it served up with a green salad and crusty bread.
