Ingredients

Fresh Corn Cob Variation

Cut kernels from about 4 cobs of corn to get 2 cups (500 mL), reserving cobs. Add cobs to soup when adding milk and simmer together. Remove cobs before pureeing soup.

Method

Step 1

In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium low heat. Add onion and cook for about 4 minutes or until softened.

 

Step 2

Stir in corn, salt and pepper; cook, stirring for about 5 minutes or until soft.

 

Step 3

Add milk and broth; bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes or until corn is very tender. Remove from heat and using an immersion blender, puree soup. Alternatively, ladle soup in batches into blender to puree.

 

Step 4

Pour soup through fine mesh strainer into a bowl or another saucepan; stirring to help push through the strainer. Add cream and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally.

 

Step 5

Ladle into small bowls or tea cups and garnish lightly with parsley and drizzle with melted butter, if desired.
