How To Make Homemade Cream Corn

Every day I am seeing the produce sections flooded with corn, some 3 ear for $1.00 some even cheaper! With Summer beginning June 21st its time to enjoy the early sweet goodness of corn.

Corn is one of my favorite vegetables and for years I adored eating this homemade cream corn over at my elderly friends house, so one day I watched how she made it so I could make my own, its simple! This is the best homemade cream corn I have ever ate! Its sweet naturally and just a little crunch with each creamy bite.

Lets get started!

A list of ingredients:

  • 2 ears of fresh corn
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste.

I remove the husks and the silk and wash the corn in cold water.

Using a dinner plate I cut the corn off the cob, this will be messy! Hold the corn at the top, the slender end, and I place the knife going down and I cut slowly as close as I can to the cob.

Then I turn the knife over and I use the back to run down the cob and get ” the juice” off, this will be the messiest part.

In a medium size skillet I put 3 tablespoons of butter. Turn the heat to medium and allow it to melt. Add the corn and cook for around 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add 2 tablespoons of flour and mix well into the corn, stirring and scraping the bottom for around one minute.

Add 1/2 cup of milk.

Stir until hot and thickening. Remove from heat, sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

And viola! You have homemade creamed corn.

Make 4 1/2 cup servings or just eat it all and call it a meal 🙂 Support your local farmers by shopping the farmers market in your area. My home town had a weekly set up but the bigger towns have a daily set up for the farmers to sell their produce to the public. You not only help support the families but you know where your food is grown.

  1. Wow…The last and only time I ate this was at my cousin’s house in Kentucky….I loved it but have never thought of making it. I have looked at tins in the supermarket but never bought it and now I can make it…Thank you Andria 🙂

  2. Important message. Local growers need your support. You also win by getting the freshest produce your area grows.
    Cream corn is the base for my corn chowder. Making it from scratch ought to boost the fresh taste level.
