Pureed Corn for Creaminess Galore!

Prepare to be blown away by the creaminess of this soup. The secret lies in pureeing the corn, which creates a luscious base for the soup. And to ensure that creaminess remains intact, a generous amount of cream is added.

The vibrant flavors of this chowder will keep you going back for seconds. Personally, I have a soft spot for fresh corn on the cob.
