I am seriously bummed out about the end of corn season. Fresh corn is one of my favorite things and the season came and went in the blink of an eye. However with some clever freezer planning, you can still enjoy the great taste of fresh corn all year long. This recipe for corn chowder is one great way to do that. Make a big batch and freeze individual or family size portions to pull out when a corn craving strikes. Adding the corn cobs to the stock adds a ton of great corn flavor without adding lots of calories.
