This creamy chowder recipe from Saveur is loaded with sweet summer corn, veggies, and crispy bacon. A perfect addition to a cool summer night meal!  Saveur is an online gourmet, food, wine, and travel magazine, and an all-around great resource to check out.

For this recipe, I used my Pampered Chef Kernel Cutter, Flex+ Multi-Prep Set, and 8-qt. (7.6-L) Nonstick Stock Pot:

Kernel Cutter

The Kernel Cutter’s curved and serrated stainless blade quickly removes kernels from cobs, and the plastic husker blade slices through corn silks and husks. The large ergonomic handle provides a comfortable grip and easy maneuverability.

Flex+ Multi-Prep Set

3 Cordless Prep Tools in One

Slicing, chopping, grating, pureeing, emulsifying, mixing, and blending doesn’t have to be time-consuming or frustrating. With the Flex+, you get three complete cordless, time-saving prep tools in one: an immersion blender, 6-cup (1.5-L) food processor, and a hand mixer, so you can quickly, effortlessly, and safely whip up whatever you’re making, anytime, anywhere. Just click the power handle to one of the attachments, choose a blade (food processor) or beaters/whisks (hand mixer), pop on one of the batteries, and you’re ready to go. We’ve included two rechargeable batteries to give you about 60 minutes of total run time. The power handle has push-button control for comfortable one-handed operation. Five speeds (three for the hand mixer) easily adjust during use for flexibility and control. Indicator lights show how much battery life is left and the speed you’re using. A safety lock prevents the Flex+ from accidentally turning on.

Immersion Blender

Big jobs or small, its slim size, stainless blade, and cookware-safe design means you control the texture of the foods you blend. You’ll enjoy smooth soups and gravies, and all kinds of sauces such as pesto, tomato, chimichurri, barbecue, dressings, marinades, mayonnaise, milkshakes, and smoothies. It includes a blending container to make homemade mayonnaise and dressings in under two minutes.

6-cup (1.5-L) Food Processor

Get fresh flavor in a flash without breaking a sweat. Choose one of the three blades based on what you’re making. The multiuse blade can cut foods to the size and texture you want, even purees. The grating blade is reversible so you can coarsely or finely grate fresh ingredients in no time. The slicing blade slices and shaves veggies for salads and sautés, potatoes and zucchini for gratins, and apples or any firm produce. (Please note, the slicing blade won’t slice cheese.)

Hand Mixer

A baker’s and breakfast maker’s best friend. Mix, beat, incorporate, and whip together eggs, batters, meringues, mashed potatoes, whipped cream, frothy egg whites, and more. Includes two beaters and two whisks.

8-qt. (7.6-L) Nonstick Stock Pot

Batch Cooking With Hassle-Free Cleanup

When big batches of pasta, soup, stew, or chili are on the menu, reach for this 8-qt. (7.6-L) nonstick stock pot. It’s never been easier to batch cook or prep for family get-togethers and special events. With high-quality nonstick coatings inside and out, this pot releases food effortlessly—and because it’s dishwasher-safe, cleanup is easy.

Ingredients

  • 8 ears corn, shucked
  • 8 slices bacon, cut into pieces
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 1.5 pounds new potatoes peeled cut into ½-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup basil thinly sliced for garnish

Instructions

Remove the husks from the corn and cut kernels from cobs using the Kernel Cutter and set kernels and cobs aside.

In large stock pot, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 12 minutes. Remove 2/3 of the bacon with slotted spoon from pan and set aside.  Remove approximately three tablespoons of the bacon drippings to a heatproof bowl; leave the rest in the pot.

Add the butter, celery, onions, garlic, thyme and bay leaf to pot, stirring to coat with drippings.  Cover and cook @ six minutes, or until the onion softens, stirring occasionally.

Add corn kernels, cobs, milk, and potatoes; bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer, cooking @25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, stir occasionally.

Discard bay leaf and cobs. Use an immersion blender to puree some (not all) of the soup to thicken.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately and top with bacon and sliced basil.
