Back in August, I posted these pics to Facebook of Savannah devouring my Fresh Creamed Corn recipe.
Now, you know me when it comes to tasty, home-cooked food — I really have no self-control. Well, when that food happens to be down-home, fresh creamed corn…I mean, are you kidding me? Done.
I have always loved creamed corn so trying to make some homemade creamed corn seemed like a real no brainer. For added flavor, Dustin grilled the corn (post coming soon!), but regular steamed corn will do just fine for this. I use fresh corn, but pre-cut kernels would still suffice.
This recipe is amazingly delicious. If you like corn, I urge you to try this. I’ve already converted certain stubborn creamed corn haters and I’m looking at you next!
Fresh Creamed Corn
4 fresh ears corn, grilled (preferably, but can also be steamed or pre-cut)
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. sugar, plus more to taste
1/4 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste (I add about additional 1/8 tsp.)
3/4 – 1 cup heavy cream (depending on desired thickness)
Heat butter over medium heat to melt. Slice cooked corn off the cob and and then, using the back of your knife, force off any remaining kernels of corn and the “milk” (juices) from the cob.
Add the flour to the butter and stir to combine. Add the sugar, salt and corn. Stir and cook 1 minute. Add the cream to slightly over your desired thickness and cook an additional 5 minutes to thicken. Season to taste with additional salt and/or sugar, if needed.
