Put bacon bones or pieces in a saucepan. Cover with water. Add the bay leaf and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 1 1/2 hours. Peel and slice the kumara into 5cm chunks. Add to the stock during the last half hour of simmering. When tender remove the bacon bones. Cut off any meat and return to the stock. Allow to cook for a further 1/2 hour. Puree in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Return to pot and add the corn and parsley. Season to taste. Simmer gently for a further 5 minutes.
