Creamy, sweet and delicious. It's worth making your own creamed corn instead of getting it from a can.

Ingredients

3tablespoons butterVideo or margarine
3tablespoons flour, all-purpose
1 1/2cups milk, whole warmed or light cream
3cups corn kernels cut from about 5 ears of corn
1x salt to taste*
1x white pepper to taste*
Add for variety
1x chives chopped*
1x sweet red bell pepper julienne strips*
1x green bell pepper julienne strips*
1x carrot shredded*
1x mushrooms sauteed button*
1pinch curry powder *
1x bacon crumbled*
* not incl. in nutrient facts

Directions

Melt butter, stir in flour. Add milk slowly, stirring with whisk until completely blended, thickened and gently bubbling. Add kernels and simmer about 3 minutes. Season with salt and white pepper.

Leftover Creamed Corn; pureed in blender or food processor, makes a quick sauce for shrimp, scallops or crab. Mix cooked seafood into corn sauce, simmer gently and spoon over a toasted English muffin.

Although any variety of fresh corn will do, white, thin-skinned kernels make a superb creamed vegetable dish.

Much better than that canned stuff they try to call creamed corn. If you use fresh corn it's incredibly sweet but I've tried this recipe with frozen corn and it works well too.
