Fresh Corn and Saffron Soup

From Australian Gourmet with Traveller, April 1989.
I do enjoy the sweetness of corn and it comes through beautifully in this soup.

An onion was chopped and sautéed in a little butter until softened. I now added a yellow capsicum cut into pieces and 3 cups frozen corn kernels. This was cooked for about 5 minutes. Next were added 2 cups of vegetable stock and a pinch of saffron. All was now brought to the boil and simmered for another 5 minutes. Using a stick blender I now pureed the soup. I next added about ¼ cup cream and stirred it in. It was tasted and a little salt and black pepper were stirred in. The soup was now ready.
Richly sweet and satisfying.
