Corn Potage

Now we can see corn in our grocery stores for like 20 cents an ear!! why wouldn't you gorge on them while they are so sweet and amazing (and cheap!!)

I think fresh corn looks like peals, don't you?





In Japan, we are just so fond of Corn Potage, for some reason. It's even sold in a small can in vending machines, hot, especially in the winter :) There's something that happens when you add that little bit of potato to this recipe. it makes it... corn potage-y.

As it usually happens to me, I didn't have exactly what the recipe called for, but close enough.
I got the general recipe from Foodjimoto, and followed all the steps as listed.


She has step by step pictures. It's very helpful!

Ingredients:

5 ears of corn, cooked (I only had 4)
1 medium sized potato, diced
1/2 medium sweet onion, diced (I used a whole medium onion)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour (I probably only used about 2)

4 to 6 cups corn cooking water
2 tablespoons Better Than Bouillon Chicken bouillon
1 cup whipping cream (I only used about 1/3 cup of cream)

sea salt
white pepper (i only had black pepper)

garnish with chopped chives and cayenne pepper or paprika

Go to Foodjimoto for the instruction and more photos!
