It’s cold in Ohio. It’s barely winter and I’m already wishful for spring. These are the days when you just want to hunker down and stay warm. We eat a lot of homemade soups this time of year. There something so comforting about a steamy bowl of homemade soup or chowder.

After creating soups from scratch I just can’t go back to the store-bought stuff. Homemade just taste so much better and is so much healthier for you.

This recipe takes no time at all to prepare. Crunchy carrots, crisp celery and salty pancetta add great flavor to this chowder. I used bite-size honey gold potatoes for this recipe and simply cleaned, quartered and tossed them into the soup with a bag of frozen sweet summer corn. Fresh corn from the cob would work great here too.

Adding a small amount of heavy cream gives the soup just the right amount of creaminess and consistency. Every spoonful is sweet and salty and your mouth and tummy will thank you.

  • After an unseasonably warm winter here in Boston. . .the cold has finally settled in. Like you, I now find that I am constantly craving warm soups to help me feel nice and toasty. And can I say that this soup is comfort food at its finest? You can never go wrong with a good chowder and I love the addition of pancetta (I’ve been working out a lot and find myself constantly craving salt) in this chowder. So tasty.
