Stripping the kernels off corn can be a messy business. The kernels seem to literally jump everywhere as you cut down with the knife. The easiest way stop the kernels pinging all over your kitchen as you work is to get a large, deep mixing bowl, and rest one end of the cob on the bottom as you cut downwards with your knife. It won’t stop the kernels making a jump for it, but the sides of the bowl will keep them in one place. If you’re on a neutropenic or antimicrobial diet, cook the parsley garnish in the soup for around 2 minutes before serving.
