"Fresh corn gives wonderful appeal to this recipe I got from my sister," relates Muriel Lerdal of Humboldt, Iowa about the full-bodied soup she shares. "It's also satisfying on a chilly fall or winter day, using frozen or canned corn."


  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced cooked peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups fresh, frozen or canned sweet corn
  • 1 cup cream-style corn
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. In a heavy saucepan, cook the onion in butter until tender. Add all remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes.
