SWEET CORN CHOWDER WITH BACON!
Amazingly, this soup was really sweet with the fresh corn. (Almost too sweet for me - may have to add more spice to cut it) It was also fun to prepare. I don't buy fresh corn very often, almost never, in fact! Just so much mess! I do have fond memories of a day at my Grandpa's farm picking and shucking corn. And being scared of the weird diseased/infested ears...and now I'm thinking, did I ever let my kids help me shuck fresh corn??? I'm wishing now maybe I had - would have been a fun experience. Another unusual thing to me about this recipe is that you put the corn cobs back into the soup to simmer for a while, I guess to help develop the flavor.
