a summer soup

Exciting news! A farmer’s market has opened in my town! I am a huge fan of fresh Long Island produce (who isn’t?) so I am thrilled to have these newly picked fruits and veggies at my fingertips every Sunday.  Besides the typical produce you expect to find at any farmer’s market, I was pleased to see a North Fork winery offering a few tastes, a Southampton bakery, and a whole stand of pickled produce.

My farmer’s market haul.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of a farmer’s market is corn. I looooooooove sweet corn in the summer.  So, in anticipation of finding some fresh ears this morning I started researching recipes.

For some reason, corn soup got stuck in my head and I found this wholesome-looking recipe:

Recipe adapted from Fresh Every Day: More Great Recipes from Foster’s Market by Sara Foster  via http://www.oldcheneyroadfarmersmarket.com/

How I eat it: with salad and garlic bread on the side

Definitely definitely definitely make the corn broth. It does not take too much more time or effort and it adds a ton of flavor.  The hot water absorbs all the goodness lying in the parts of the veggies that you usually toss.

Enjoy! =)

  1. I wasn’t sure what I would think of this soup…and I really didn’t think your dad would like it at all…Surprise, surprise — he loved it and was telling people today to log on, get the recipe and make it! It really was quite good and seems like it would be nice cold as well…

  2. Are you the photographer too? The color and presentation enhance the mouthwatering descriptions! Nice work!
