Recipe Ingredients for Basic Corn Chowder

4 ears of corn
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tomatoes, cored, seeded and chopped
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped parsley

Recipe Directions for Basic Corn Chowder

  1. Shuck corn, and use a paring knife to strip kernels into a bowl. Put cobs in a pot with 4 cups water; bring to a boil, cover and simmer while you continue.

  2. Put butter or oil in a saucepan, and turn heat to medium-high. When butter melts or oil is hot, add onion and potatoes, along with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion softens, about 5 minutes; add tomatoes and cook, stirring, for another minute or two.

  3. After corncobs have cooked at least 10 minutes, strain liquid into onion-potato mixture; bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. When potatoes are tender, add corn kernels and milk, and heat through. Taste, and adjust seasonings. Garnish with the parsley, and serve.
