CREAMED CORN

6 ears corn, husked about 3 cups

1/2 cup whole milk, divided

2 Tbsp unsalted butter

1 cup heavy cream

salt to taste

Cayenne or Tabasco sauce, I used Tabasco…quite a few shakes

Cut kernels from ears of corn. Divide corn in half and place 1/2 of the corn and 1/4 cup of the milk into a food processor and puree. Melt butter in saute pan over med high heat. Add the remaining corn, pureed corn, cream and the rest 1/4 cup milk. Add salt and tabasco. Simmer and stir occasionally until thickened. May take about 20 minutes or so.

Kit’s Komments:

The original recipe says to simmer for 10 minutes, but I simmered it until dinner was ready which was a good 45 minutes. The starches in the corn help to thicken it up and the longer you simmer, the thicker it gets.

    We are getting lots of corn right now here in Alabama along with great tomatoes. I will try this recipe soon. The corn is either Silver King or Silver Sweet and they are a white delicious corn. The season is about over for it so we have it as much as possible. Thanks for the great recipes.
