Chunky Corn Chowder Recipe

Corn and new potatoes make a hearty pairing in this soup.

Melt 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp oil in pot. Add 1 cup chopped onion, 1 bay leaf and 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves. Cook over low heat, stirring, about 5 minutes. Cut 6 medium new potatoes into chunks (about 4 cups); add to onion along with 4 cups water or stock. Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Cut kernels off 6 ears of Miracle corn. Add to soup. Simmer until heated through and corn is tender (5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with basil or chives.

Gardening Tip of the Day

  • If your corn crop didn’t produce well last season it could be due to several of these common problems:
    * Seeds were planted too close together and became overcrowded.
    * Plants did not receive enough fertilizer. Corn is a heavy feeder and especially needs nitrogen for optimal development.
    * Crop was not adequately weeded or watered when weather was dry.
    * Weather was too cold before corn could mature. Try using a hybrid corn variety bred for shorter growing seasons.
    * Corn was poorly pollinated. To prevent poor pollination, plant corn in blocks instead of long rows.
    * Crop was not rotated or stalks were left in the garden over the winter. Rotate corn to a different place every year and remove old foliage to prevent disease and insect problems. Plant a cover crop to renew soil where corn was growing.
