Fresh Corn Soup

"Delightfully refreshing. For spicy taste--substitute green chiles for green pepper. Add a dollop of salsa or sour cream and chopped chives to enhance the flavor."

    Wonderful way to use fresh summer corn. I made this as directed only substituting half-and-half. I also pureed about 1/3 of the soup in a blender and then added it back into the soup along with the remaining ingredients before the final heating. This gave the soup a creamy base along with the texture of the corn... Absolutely delicious!

    A great way to use up that extra corn. Reviewed the other recipes and added a few extras - 4 cloves of garlic, a rib of celery, a piece of broccoli, and I substitutes much of the half and half with regular skim milk, a little cream cheese, and some heavy cream. I also ran it through the bleneder and then the food mill to get rid of my old corn hunks and make it creamy smooth. I think it turned out great. Jim in So. California.

    Made up a batch of this for lunch and couldn't resist eating half all by myself. I used the green pepper, because I had a left-over part of a peppper to use up, but added a bit of hot pepper sauce to try to mimic the effect of using green chilies. A great, quick, easy lunch or supper, bursting with flavor.

    This is a wonderful soup! I also sauteed 2 tablespoons fresh garlic with onion and bell pepper and also added in 2 jalapeno pepers, I did add in the pimientos which was a great addition to this soup, Caroline thank you sharing, we really enjoyed this!...Kitten:)

    Super easy to make, very summer-y taste. I used a whole onion and green pepper and just enough tasbasco to give it a little "zing." I was somewhat suprised to find that my 14 month old daughter loved it even though it was just slightly spicy.

<p><br />I love to cook, read and try new recipes. Marketing professional by education and business experience, but wrote cooking feature articles and a recipe column in the past--when my 2 sons were young. Also, owned a book shop for 5 years; carried lots of cookbooks; and, of course-- had to have one of each. LOL! Invited cookbook authors to signing events and would make some of their recipes for customers to sample. <br /><br />My philosphy is-- <br /><br />LIFE IS NOT A JOURNEY TO THE GRAVE WITH THE INTENTION OF ARRIVING SAFELY IN A PRETTY AND WELL-PRESERVED BODY, BUT RATHER TO SKID IN BROADSIDE, THOROUGHLY USED UP, TOTALLY WORN OUT, AND LOUDLY PROCLAIMING, WOW! WHAT A RIDE! <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif alt= /> <img
