Cheddar Corn Chowder


Corn chowder is a personal favorite, and I love the addition of the cheddar and the use of turmeric!

I try a lot of new recipes, but there are a few that I repeat EVERY season. This is one of them. I make it with fresh corn- but at the end of the season- when it starts to get chilly and we are ready to eat warm soup. This recipe was adapted from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook by Ina Garten.

Note: I wrote a guest post on SimplyVegetarian777.wordpress.com with a vegetarian version of this delicious soup. The recipe can be found here.

  • 8 ounces bacon (about 8 slices)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 cups chopped yellow or sweet onions (3 to 4 large onions)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds medium-diced boiling potatoes, unpeeled
  • 6 -10 cups corn kernels, fresh (from 10 ears)
  • 2 cups half-and-half
