Joe's Sweet, Hot and Savory Corn Chowder

16 oz frozen corn
1 stick butter
4 potatoes, diced
1 tablespoon died orange zest
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup chives, chopped
1 teaspoon smoked dried hot red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped fine
vegetable stock
dry potato flakes

defrost corn and sauté it in butter with the potatoes, salt, orange zest and dried red pepper.
allow the corn to just caramelize and add the orange juice.
simmer for 1 hour and add water or vegetable stock (without tomatoes) to keep the liquid from drying out.
add scallions, sour cream and half and half and bring just to a boil.  Thicken with potato flakes is desired.
serve in bowls topped with parsley.
