6 medium ears corn, kernels cut off (about 6 cups), cobs reserved
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for serving
2 Russet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, plus more for serving
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/4 cups fairlife whole ultra-filtered milk
1/4 cup finely chopped chives or parsley
Freshly ground black pepper, for serving
Cut corn cobs crosswise in half; set aside kernels. In a wide heavy pot or Dutch oven, heat butter and oil over medium-low heat; add potatoes, onion, paprika, thyme and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
Add corn cobs and 4 cups water. Bring to a gentle simmer, reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until potatoes break down, 12 to 15 minutes. Add fairlife ultra-filtered milk and corn kernels. Return liquid to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, until corn kernels are tender, 6 to 10 minutes more.
Remove and discard cobs, then season soup with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle soup into bowls. Top with chives, pepper and pinch smoked paprika.
