Fresh Corn

I just love creamed corn. My Mama made the best in the world. I never was able to get her recipe. She told me over the phone once and I wrote down most of the recipe but then I didn’t get it all so the recipe for Fresh Creamed Corn is a combination of mine and Mamas. I hope ya’ll give it a try. I think it is almost as good a Mama’s. Give it a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

Fresh Creamed Corn:

12 ears corn, shucked and silks removed

2 sticks unsalted butter

1 cup cream

2 tablespoons flour

salt and pepper to taste

2tablespoons sugar

Cut the corn from the cobs. Make sure to scrape the cob to get as much of the corn milk as possible. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and add the flour. Make a golden roux.Place the corn kernels,cream,sugar, and remaining butter into a Dutch oven. Add the roux. Cook over a low heat till well heated and thickened. If the creamed corn is not sweet enough add 1 more teaspoon of sugar. Stir well.

Hope to see ya’ll soon.
