Ingredients:  
cup butter
1 small onion, diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
cup all-purpose flour
3 cups white corn kernels, fresh or frozen
3 cups chicken stock

Directions:
Directions:
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic and saute for 2 minutes.

Add the flour and stir to make a roux. Cook until the roux is lightly browned. Set aside to cool to room temp.

Meanwhile combine the corn and chicken stock in another saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour the boiling stock with the corn (a little at a time) into the saucepan with the roux, whisking briskly so it doesn't get lumpy. Return the skillet to the heat and bring to a boil. The mixture should become very thick.

In a small saucepan, gently heat the half-and-half, stir it into the thick corn mixture. Add the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.
