How to Use A&B American Style: Chilled Corn and Peach Soup

This recipe is cross posted on our @Medium page. There are some additional notes made there. Check it out

If you like seasonal produce, then you probably have a lot of corn and peaches right now. Great! Because corn and peaches are delicious.

Here’s a summer soup to make from any extra corn and peaches you have. I like to eat it chilled while sitting on the porch. You are welcome to eat it warm if you prefer (substitute stock for water in that case).

It gets a bite from ginger and our Original Pepper Sauce. Coupled with the natural sweetness in the corn and peaches, this flavor combo is a perfect way to start a picnic.


Chilled Corn and Peach Summer Soup

Serves Four to Six, depending on your bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 ears of corn
  • 2 ripe peaches, diced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 really fat spring onion or 3 of the skinny ones, chopped

  • Our A&B American Style Original Pepper Sauce
  • Water
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Shuck and clean the corn
  2. Cut the kernels off the cob
  3. Add the kernels and naked cobs to a pot with enough water to cover them and heat
  4. When the water starts boiling, add the chopped spring onion
  5. 3 minutes is enough to cook the corn and spring onion. Then turn off the heat
  6. Save about 2 cups of the cooking water (you probably won’t use it all)
  7. Toss the cobs, they don’t help you anymore
  8. Strain the corn kernels and spring onions out of remaining water
  9. Set some of the kernels aside for garnish
  10. Dice the peaches and put them in the blender
  11. Add the minced ginger to the blender

  13. Blend a little on low (note: be careful when blending hot liquids)
  14. Blend more on high
  15. Add A&B American Style Original Pepper Sauce
  16. Add water to get to your desired texture
  17. Season with salt to taste
  18. Chill ← You and the soup
  19. Taste and adjust seasoning
  20. Portion out the soup (there are 4–6 servings here depending on your bowls)

  22. Crush some blue corn tortilla chips for crunch and presentation
  23. Enjoy!
