Comfort food? You got it! The secret to this recipe is the evaporated milk! This is several recipes combined to make one yummy soup!! I use my own home-grown and frozen corn (about 2 1/2 c.) and cream only about half of it...but, the frozen creamed corn from your grocer's freezer or canned creamed corn are great too! Sometimes I use a little seasoning salt instead of just salt to add a bit more flavor. Enjoy!
