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!
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)
white pepper (i only had black pepper)
garnish with chopped chives and cayenne pepper or paprika
