Roasted Corn Chowder

Corn chowder is one of my favorite soups. I stopped by a local farm and they had just brought in a load of just picked corn! I decided to make a corn chowder to try out my new corn cutter. I've always boiled the corn in the past, but decided to roast the corn for a change.

Silver Queen corn, 16 ears:

Roasted corn direct at 400 or so and applied melted butter while roasting:

While stripping the kernels I decided to roast a red pepper and a vidalia onion:

I took 2/3's of the corn kernels and added 3 cups of heavy cream and 5 cups chicken broth, and chopped onion to the pot and brought it to a simmer for 10 minutes and added S&P to taste. I decided to wear my yellow polka dot apron to keep with the corn theme:

The soup was pureed in the food processor, then I combined it with the reserved 1/3 of the kernels (with a small amout set aside for garnish). The red pepper was pureed with some olive oil and chopped some chives for garnish.

The corn chowder is served:

This corn chowder is distinctly different from the boiled corn chowder. The nutty, roasted flavor really shines through. This is a very versatile soup. I seldom use heavy cream, but I had it on hand after making some peach shortcakes. To make it less rich you can decrease the cream, use a lighter cream, or even completely replace it with chicken broth. You can make it very refined by pureeing all of the corn. You can make it more rustic by reserving more whole kernels. The only essential is great corn!

    Looks awesome. Next time, consider boiling your cobs in your chicken stock for 30 minutes or so, then removing them and proceeding with the cook as normal. You'll taste the difference.

    Molly, what can I say? You kind of set the standard for forum behavior when you went to the ice fest (or don't you remember that event?). :woohoo: . It's been down hill for the rest of us ever since!

    Our corn is grown in sand. I can only imaging how good it tasted.

    The chowder looks great. I've never heard of a corn cutter before guess I need to look into that. As for the cut you don't need a fancy cutter any dull knife will work, no need to ask how I know that :whistle: and from what I here bill has a large selection of artistic bandages. :laugh:

    Eggcellent, you are absolutely correct! :) I've already frozen some corn for the winter.

    Pat, my Freudian analysis of the cut is that I must have subconsciously wanted one of bill's band-aids and hence the injury from the corn stripper. B)

    R... I agree. I was born in Michigan and asked to leave. The fresh picked corn was good enough to eat without cooking.

  • Great post and the soup looks lovely. Sorry about your finger!

    I got one of those corn cutters from Pampered Chef and it seems pretty hard to cut your self on it, or rather, I just haven't done it yet!

    I used Zippy's services. After we won the judgment. He sued me and I ended up with nothing.
