French Fridays - Corn Soup
Fall is in the air in Venice Beach. I have felt a chill in the air in the evenings and found dew on my windows in the morning. Before I say goodbye to Summer I wanted to make a corn dish. Corn was on sale at my local market and I decided on Dorie's Corn Soup from Around My French Table.
This soup is infused with corn flavor on many levels. After the corn is removed from the cobs, the cobs are then cooked in the milk to bring out more flavor. Other ingredients include onion, celery, carrot, garlic, thyme, rosemary and bay leaf. After all the cooking is done the cobs are fished out and the rest is pureed to a smooth soup. The reviews from the group were to include the salty toppings to off set this sweet soup. I included bacon and fresh corn pieces. It was delicious, my husband and I both liked it and would make it again.
