Chowder is seriously delicious comfort food, and exactly what you want to tuck into when the weather takes a chilly turn.
Not really soup and not really stew, a good chowder occupies the middle ground between both - it's substantial, hearty and filling, but you can still sip it from a spoon. In fact, it's been said that if you can't stand your spoon up in it, then it's not a chowder, but you can decide that for yourself!

Take a little time to make this lovely chowder with a fragrant, sautéed vegetable base, ham and plenty of sweet corn and you'll be sooo glad you did!
2. Fresh salmon chowder (h/t The Spruce)
This version is super-delicious and gloriously rich with milk, cheese and salmon. Don't skip the parsley at the end; the slightly bitter green freshness ties everything together perfectly.
