What is creamed corn?

Creamed corn  (also known by other names, such as "cream-style corn") is a soupy style sauce made by melting butter and adding flour, milk, canned or fresh corn, and optionally some spices.  The resulting corn soup is partially puréed which releases some of the sweet liquid in the corn kernels.

Sugar and starch may be added and in home-made version, some variety of milk and sometimes cream.

In store-bought canned versions milk is less common while added sugars and salt are more commonly added.

It's easy to make your own creamed corn and avoid added salt and preservatives of canned varieties.
