Fresh Corn Soup2017-12-28
Simmer corn with salt in the water, covered, 20 minutes, or until very tender. Puree soup in batches in a blender until very smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids). As each batch is pureed, pour through a coarse sieve, pressing on solids, into a saucepan if serving hot or into a metal bowl if serving cold. Reheat soup, stirring, or chill it by setting bowl of soup in a larger bowl of ice and cold water and stirring. If soup is too thick, thin with water. Serve sprinkled with chives.
