From the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Institute of Chicago, 1947. An easy way to chop the corn might be to whirl it in the blender or food processor with the water and onion, THEN heating it to boiling. Hearty by itself or nicely garnished with chopped ham, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese or parsley.
