I have never been a "corn chowder girl," never appealed to me, never bothered with it. However, while visiting my sister in NH she made this chowder with fresh local corn and I could not stop eating it. The flavor is so different than I thought it would be. Fresh herbs, fresh corn, no cream....lovely. Using fresh corn is absolutely encouraged, and as the summer ends, it is a great time to gather up the end of the season corn and try this. You won't regret it!
Wonderful reheated!!
