Soups this hearty and delicious don't grow on trees. And it's a good thing they don't! Those branches aren't stable enough. Surely the bowl, like the baby in the cradle rock-a-bye-ing, will fall. Then it's in a thousand pieces, and the soup will get absorbed into the dirt. No one wants that. What were talking about, again? Ah yes, this soup. It's hearty and delicious. Tip: To keep corn kernels from making a mess, hold the ear of corn vertically in a bowl. Cut downward, rotating corn as you go, so kernels end up in the bowl instead of scattered on your counter.
