How To Make Fresh Creamed Corn

Back in August, I posted this pic to Facebook of Savannah devouring my Fresh Creamed Corn recipe.

What I didn’t post, fortunately, were photos of me licking my plate along with her.

I’m kidding, of course…kind of.

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?

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.

  1. Okay, did this recipe change? I swear I used to come to this page for my go-to creamed corn but I never would have saved a recipe with coconut milk in it.

  2. This is the best way to make fresh creamed Corn it’s passed down from my great grandmother I start with 12 ears of corn and cut half the kernels off the cob and then take a knife and scrape the rest of the corn off that’s where the cream comes from and cook for about 10 minutes and add a little bacon grease or fat back you can add some whole cream if you like it’s so good and you can freeze what’s left I hope you try it and like it.

  3. If I only have home frozen whole corn, approximately how many cups should I use?
    Also, if a recipe calls for a can of creamed corn, approximately, how much of this recipe do you think that would be?
    Thank you so much!!!

    1. Good question! One medium ear of corn will yield about 3/4 cup of corn kernels so you’d want approx. 3 cups total of corn. I’d substitute it 1:1 in a recipe that calls for canned cream corn. Enjoy!

  4. Lacey, I have a question about your creamed corn recipe. Can I can this via hot water bath or pressure cooker? Any thoughts or suggestions?
    Thanks and keep up your wonderful blog and videos!!

    1. Karen, that’s a great question. I’m not very familiar with pressure cookers, so I really don’t know. It’d be worth a shot though – if you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out!

  5. I have been to San Tan Flats steak house and love their creamed corn. I think this is the recipe I have been looking for. Thank you

  6. Great recipe. My family and I would go to a restaurant called San Tan Flats and they would have the best cream corn. We have since sold our vacation home so won’t be visiting the restaurant anymore. I have been looking for a recipe that looked like theirs – this is the one. I used frozen corn and it was still great. Thanks!
