Homemade Corn Soup
Have you ever had a nice homemade corn soup, it’s making my mouth water just thinking about it. The most important ingredient to this recipe is fresh corn on the cob.
Here’s what you will need:
1 bag fresh corn on the cob
1lb pig tail
1 lb beef
3 large potatoes
1 carrot (medium size)
Method: Depending on the size of the corn cut them in two or three pieces and put them in a big pot. Season with Chive, Celery, Black pepper, Onion, Garlic, and Salt/Seasoning Salt and add some Margarine and place on the stove to boil until cooked. Put your pigtail in a separate pan of water and lime juice and when the pigtail is half way cooked throw out some of the water and refill with fresh water and return to the stove to continue boiling.
Cut up the beef and season with chive, celery, black pepper, onion, garlic and salt. Again pay attention to how much salt you use, as the pig tail is going to have its own salt. Be on the safe side use a little you can always add more later on if necessary. Also make sure all your chive celery, onion and garlic are cut very fine. When you are finished add the seasoned beef to the corn so that they can blend in with each other.
While the corn, beef and pig tail are cooking peel your potatoes and carrots and cut them into one and a half inch pieces. Keep them soaking in water until you are ready to add them to the pot as you don’t want the potatoes to change color. At this point you can add the pig tail and its water to the pot of corn and beef and let them continue to boil until they are cooked. You should periodically taste your corn soup to determine if it needs more salt. I am a taster when it comes to cooking; I just love to keep tasting to see if I need to add more of something.
When the beef, corn and pigtail are cooked add in your potatoes and carrots to the pot and let boil until everything is properly cooked. I might mention hear that you can also add a couple of spaghetti strands, or some twirls to the corn soup to give it that extra richness. This is optional but if you do decide to add either one do not put it in the pot until the potatoes and carrots are almost cooked. Pasta cooks much faster than potatoes and carrots and tends to get soggy when overcooked. Hope you enjoy.
