Tips & Notes

Gluten-free recipe notes:

• Store-bought vegetable broth might contain flour or food-starch modified. Make your own broth at home with leftover veggies to be safe.

• Flour is commonly a thickener in cream corn, so canned versions are not GF. Try our Gluten-Free Creamed Corn recipe.

• Lea & Perrins Original Worcestershire Sauce is naturally gluten free, according to the manufacturer.



  1. Cut corn off cobs (if using fresh corn), enough to make 2 cups fresh corn kernels.

  2. In a large saucepan, add fresh or frozen corn, potatoes, celery, onion, broth and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer chowder, 10 to 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

  3. Stir in undrained cream-style corn, milk and Worcestershire sauce. Heat through.
