Creamy Corn Soup

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2004

Ingredients

  • 16 ears yellow corn
  • 4 tablespoons butter, (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • Tortilla chips, (optional)
  • Lime wedges, (optional)
  • Scallions, sliced, (optional)

Directions

  1. Remove husks and silks from corn. Holding ears in a large bowl, slice off kernels (to yield about 10 cups). When slicing corn from cobs, work in a deep bowl to catch the kernels and any juices. In two batches, puree kernels and accumulated juices with a total of 2 cups water until chunky.

  2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook pureed corn, butter, 4 cups water, and salt until butter is melted and soup is heated through, 5 minutes.

  3. Serve hot, garnished with tortilla chips, lime wedges, and sliced scallions, as desired.

Cook's Notes

Let cool, then freeze in individual servings; reheat over medium-low (or in microwave).
