Grandma's Corn & Tomato Soup

Ever wonder why your dish doesn't taste like you remember Grandma's tasting?  It all starts at the base.  Take a look at the first couple of instructions in this vintage recipe...


Grate the corn from six ears of sweet corn. Put the cobs into a quart and a pint of water and cook until all the sweetness is extracted—about half an hour. Remove the cobs and add a pint of tomatoes after they are skinned and sliced, a small onion cut in slices, a French carrot cut in dice, a quarter of a green pepper chopped fine, and the grated corn. Let it cook slowly until all are tender. Stir in two good tablespoonfuls of butter, salt and pepper to taste, pour into the tureen and serve.
