Creamed Corn Recipe
diced, or white onion
shucked and cleaned
salt and pepper
optional"”omit if your corn is very sweet
Slice kernels off the cobs as described above.
Heat a saute pan over medium-low heat until hot. Add the butter and swirl to coat the bottom.
Sweat the onion with salt and pepper until softened and translucent. Don't let them brown, so adjust the heat down if the onions are starting to take on color.
Add the corn kernels and all the pulp and milk you scraped off of the cobs along with the water.
Add a pinch more salt and pepper and the sugar (if using). Bring to a boil, stirring constantly and mashing the kernels against the bottom and sides of the pan to extract all the starches.
Add the heavy cream and reduce slightly until thick and creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Eat creamed corn as is, or stir in some minced fresh herbs.
