    1. In large saucepan over moderate heat, cook bacon until browned, about 4 minutes. Drain bacon with slotted spoon and reserve for garnish.

    4. Add corn kernels and return soup to boil. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes longer.
    5. Remove from heat and, using a ladle or slotted spoon, transfer about 2 1⁄2 cups vegetables to food processor. Purée until smooth.
