This is probably the simplest creamed corn recipe you'll find. I have tried additions of spices and variations on thickeners for the cream, but when you have fresh, sweet corn, I believe simplicity is the best way to concentrate the natural flavors.
  • 8-10 Fresh corn, cut off the cob
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Corn Starch
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  1. Place the corn in a pan and add the butter on top.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, cornstarch and salt and mix well.
  3. Pour milk mixture over the corn.
  4. Cook on low until it comes to a low boil/simmer, about 10-15 minutes.
When you have young sweet corn, it doesn't need to cook long. Later in the season you may have to cook the corn a bit longer until it is tender. If you noticed, there is no plated photo of this dish. It was so good, we forgot to take a picture! :)
