California sweet corn chowder

Recipe by:Andy Powning


  • 4 oz. salt pork
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cups potato, cut in quarter-inch chunks
  • 2 cups combination chicken broth and water
  • Salt, fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 cups scraped corn
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Remove rind and cut salt pork into log-sized pieces, 2 inches long by 1 ¼-inch thick. Blanch in boiling water for five minutes. Drain, pat dry and cut into quarter-inch cubes. Sauté in a large saucepan over medium heat until crisp; remove and drain all but 3 tbsp. of fat. Chop onion and cook in fat until softened and golden. Add potatoes, broth and water, 1 tsp. salt and scraped corn. Bring to a boil, lower heat and cook, partially covered, until potatoes are tender. Stir in corn kernels and cook five minutes longer. Add heavy cream; cook until heated through. Season with salt, pepper and the pork if you like.

Serves 4.
