What’s the best way to eat delicious late-summer corn as we transition into fall? You got it: in a bowl of the world’s most comforting soup. Here are seven ways to make corn chowder, whether raw and vegan or bacon-studded.
1. With ham. Use a smoked ham rind and corn cobs to make a wildly flavorful broth for this simple take on corn chowder.
2. With fish. Add another one of summer’s best ingredients—Alaskan wild salmon—to your chowder a few minutes before serving.
