    For vegan or vegetarian version, you can use Nutritional Yeast instead of the Parm rind. Same umami flavor.

            Carla, if I tried to do what you do, I would die of starvation, because it would be horrible.

              This soup changed my life. Never again will i be able to spend less than two hours on corn chowder. Never again will I be able to consume corn chowder that is not this one. I’m writing this immediately after eating the chowder because I am in awe of the spiritual experience I just had eating your corn chowder.

                      Why don't I have fresh corn??? I love chowders, as long as they're not thick and gloopy. That over-thickened white sauce with canned stuff in it just doesn't cut it, does it? Thanks, Carla, for being the cook and Rick for working out the process.

                            I love marjoram. Great with chicken. My elderly neighbor said that my fresh marjoram could be put in sachets for the linen cabinet!

                                        @8:25 THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!! I'm glad you said that out loud. I cannot stand it when i see a cook waste effort by bashing a knife through fine herbs and essentially crush them. I've seen cooks use two knives, a cleaver and (shudder) a mezza luna to cut parsley etc...

                                                    I have been really excited to make this recipe since I saw it. I made it for a dinner party for the first time and everyone loved it! When I added everything together in the last step of cream and adding the sauteed corn, I had a little try and I was like "wow tastes amazing!". My girlfriend had the same reaction. And our guests loved it! I added coriander as a garnish and it worked like a charm... Thanks for the recipe! Sharing the love!! ❤️

                                                    P.s. MAAAA WHY IS THE CHOWDER BROWN!!?

It's because you'll only get parm rinds from traditionally made parmesan cheese, and they will always have the ingredient rennet, which is made from a calves stomach lining (veal). All old style, classic hard cheeses have rennet- if you see the label and it doesn't specify vegetarian rennet, it's not vegetarian. Soft cheeses are usually made with acids though, so they're often still vegetarian. Make sure you check your labels carefully when choosing your cheeses if you don't want to eat meat by-products. I'm not sure, but pre-grated parm in the can is usually not real parm, so you may be able to continue eating it.
                                                                          If you want a similar flavour to the parm rinds (naturally occuring MSG) you can sub in more mushrooms, miso or even msg powder.

                                                                                  To make this vegan remove the bacon (add a lil liquid smoke, and more salt and fat), also remove the heavy whipping creme and replace it with homemade vegan heavy whipping creme (1 cup soy milk no additives at room temp, stick that in a blender or mixer put it on high and add in 1 cup refined coconut oil (unrefined if you like coconut flavor) but add it slowly or it won't come together as a creme) Just made it and it's great! Thanks!
