corn and ginger chicken soup

Besides how fresh and fragrant this soup tastes I also love how easy it is. And it freezes well. Use frozen corn in a pinch but I stand corn cobs in their end and run my knife down each cob to produce lots of sweet, juicy kernels. I use about 4 large cobs for this recipe. It’s one of those perfect recipes to make on the weekend and freeze for lunch for during the week or as a Sunday night supper.
