Corn Soup, Chipotle, Popcorn - Bruno Albouze - THE REAL DEAL

Corn Soup, Chipotle Recipe. Serves 8.
Sautéing
6 ea. corn ears
3 Tbsp (45ml) olive oil
4 Tbsp (60g) butter
4 shallots (180g), chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
Corn Stock
6 cobs, cut in half (to release more flavor)
3 sprigs fresh thyme
4.5 cups (1100ml) water or milk.

Method
Remove husks, silks and tassels from each corn and cut corn off the cob and save both; corns and cobs. In a saucepan, place the halved cobs, thyme and water. Cover and bring to boil and let simmer for 30 minutes at least. Meanwhile, in a large hot pot sweat shallots with olive oil and butter for about 8 minutes on medium heat. Add corn and cook for 5 minutes more and season with salt and pepper. Pour in corn stock (discard solids and thyme). Cook for about 20 minutes on low heat; covered. Blend well and pass through a fine mesh sieve. Adjust the consistency of the soup (add more liquid if it is too thick) and add more seasoning if needed. Let simmer corn soup on the stove whisking every once in awhile for about 20 minutes. Corn soup can be served hot or chilled. It can be refrigerated up to 5 days or frozen. Blend soup right before serving to lighten the texture. Some heavy cream can be added to the corn soup too but it is totally optional.
