How to Prepare Amazing Corn Chowder
If you have fresh ears of corn, boil the corn by placing it in a covered deep saucepan over a small amount of boiling water until corn is tender (skip this step if using canned corn). Remove the fresh corn, and carefully slice off the kernels using a sharp knife or the large grating end of a box grater (a four sided grater found in cookery stores). Next, add in the butter and olive oil together to a deep saucepan and heat to medium. Slice and add the onion and sauté (lightly brown over heat until onions are nearly clear in appearance). Add in the milk and chicken stock to the sautéed onions. Stir, then salt and pepper to taste. Finally, add in the yellow corn, diced potatoes, spices and seasonings, and heavy cream. Cover over medium heat and let simmer for five minutes, and then serve.
