This soup was one of my favorites as a child in upstate New York, and I still love it today. For extra depth, place the spent cob in the soup, simmer, then remove. —Tracy Bivins, Knob Noster, MO

"Creamy and delicious! I used canned no-salt added corn (didn't have fresh), and it turned out great. I did have to use corn starch instead of flour to thicken it, but that's a minor change. I'll be making this again! Thanks!"

"This soup is so simple and so delicious. It tasted even better warmed up the next day. I made a second batch to share with coworkers - everyone loved it and asked for the recipe."
