There are two basic versions of chicken corn soup, the Amish version, and the Asian version. In Amish cuisine, chicken, creamed corn, vegetables, and small flour dumplings are cooked in a broth.

In Asian cuisine it’s made with chicken, corn, eggs, and pepper, sometimes with noodles added, commonly called egg drop soup.

How to Store Corn Soup

Chicken corn soup will last 3-4 days in airtight containers in the refrigerator. You can also freeze it in freezer-safe bags or containers for up to 6 months.

To reheat the frozen chicken corn soup, simply allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight, then reheat until piping hot throughout.

History of the Recipe

Chickens were domesticated in Asia about 8000 years ago, so they were the first people to make chicken soup. However, corn was domesticated in the Americas about 8,700 years ago and they were the first people to make corn soup. These two great tastes would not meet until the European settlers brought chickens to the new world.

Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine reflects influences of the German agrarian society from which it comes and the rejection of rapid change. The oldest recorded recipe for chicken corn soups that I could find. dates back to 1853 in; A Quaker Woman’s Cookbook: The “Domestic Cookery” of Elizabeth Ellicott Lea.

A Brief History of New Holland

In 1728, John Diffenderfer and his family settled in the wooded countryside, near what would become New Holland, Lancaster County. Other German farmers that followed Diffenderfer were spread thinly across the countryside of northern Lancaster County.

Abe Zimmerman, a 26-year-old village tradesman in 1895, opened a machine repair shop. Zimmerman’s New Holland Machine Shop introduced a portable feed mill in 1899 and went on to produce other farm equipment innovations aimed at reducing a farmer’s labor.

Today, it is known as Case-New Holland, the second-largest manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the world with more than 10,000 dealers in 160 countries.

The New Holland Farmers Fair

New Holland also celebrates its agricultural tradition the first week of every October at the New Holland Farmers Fair. Since 1927, the town fair has featured a slice of real hometown Americana with funnel cakes, barbecue, horseshoes, and other simple pleasures. There also are exhibitions of arts and crafts, fruits, vegetables, wine, photos, needlework, and quilting.
