OLD-FASHIONED CREAMED CORN

This is real, old-fashioned creamed corn. There's no dairy cream (other than the butter used,) just the creamy "milk" from the corn cob. It's so delicious! Everyone loves it, even the very pickiest children. We grow our own sweet corn and prepare quite a bit of it for this recipe alone. We cut off the kernels, scrape the cobs, then measure out three cups per freezer bag. We just love being able to enjoy this summer side-dish all year long!
