    4                    Sprigs parsley
    1                    Leek
      1/2                Carrot -- cut lengthwise
    1                    Stalk celery -- chopped
      1/4                Bay leaf
    1       pn           Sage
    1       pn           Thyme
    2                    Thick slices bacon, diced
    1       c            New corn pulp
      1/2   c            Onion -- chopped fine
      1/2   c            Celery -- chopped fine
    4       c            Chicken broth
      3/4   c            Raw potatoes -- diced
    1 1/2   c            Tomatoes -- peeled & chopped
    1       pn           Cayenne pepper
      1/2   c            Heavy cream
    1       t            Cornstarch
 
     “The key to this delicious soup is to gently scrape
   the kernels off the corn cob with a table fork so the
   skins remain on the cob, leaving you with only the
   fresh pulp.”
   
     Use a 12 square of cheesecloth to make a bouquet
   garni of the first 7 ingredients and set aside.  In a
   large saucepan over medium heat, first soften the
   bacon, then add the corn, onions, and celery and saute
   until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add the chicken broth,
   potatoes, tomatoes, and the bouquet garni. Bring to a
   boil, reduce heat and slow boil for 1 hour. Remove the
   bouquet garni. Add the cayenne pepper. Meanwhile,
   using your fingers, dissolve the cornstarch in heavy
   cream at room temperature. Add cornstarch/cream
   mixture to soup and stir until heated through.
