Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 3 tsp butter or margarine
  • 3 tsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cup warmed lowfat milk, whole, milk or light cream
  • 3 cup fresh corn kernels, cut, from about 5 ears of corn
  • Salt to taste
  • White pepper to taste
  • Add for variety:
  • Chopped chives
  • Julienne red pepper strips
  • Julienne green pepper strips
  • Shredded carrot
  • Sauteed button mushrooms
  • Pinch curry powder
  • Crumbled bacon


Instructions:

1. Melt butter, stir in flour.
2. Add milk slowly, stirring with whisk until completely blended, thickened and gently bubbling.
3. Add kernels and simmer about 3 minutes.
4. Season with salt and white pepper.
5. Leftover Creamed Corn; pureed in blender or food processor, makes a quick sauce for shrimp, scallops or crab.
6. Mix cooked seafood into corn sauce, simmer gently and spoon over a toasted English muffin.
7. Although any variety of fresh corn will do, white, thin-skinned kernels make a superb creamed vegetable dish.
