It’s corn season!!!  Here’s the recipe for one of my favorite ways to eat summer corn (of course the best way is right off the cob, steamed and served with some butter and salt). Heat a large Dutch Oven over medium-high heat with olive oil.  Add bacon to hot oil and cook until crispy around the edges.  Add onions, corn, zucchini, potatoes, peppers, bay leaf, thyme, paprika, and salt and pepper to the pot.  Cook until vegetables begin to softened, stirring occasionally, about 7-8 minutes.  Melt butter into pot of vegetables.  Once melted, sprinkle in flour, stir and cook for about 1 minute.  Then, stir in stock and water, let it come to a bubble.  Next stir in cream, parsley, and cayenne pepper.  Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring.  Lastly, season with salt and pepper as needed.  Serve hot with oyster crackers if desired.  Enjoy!
