Notes

Tips to make the best-creamed corn:

  1. Use full-fat cream for the best results. If you want to tone down the calories, you can use less cream and add it to flour roasted in melted butter and cooked with milk. This gives you the same creamy texture, but clocks less on the calories. 
  2. Use corn that is juicy and not overripe. Fresh corn kernels are sweetish and juicy. Overripe corn doesn’t give much of a flavor and is harder. 
  3. If you feel that the creamed corn is too runny, add in a little cornflour mixed in a little water. This will thicken the cream. 
  4. If your creamed corn got overcooked and is too thick, you can add the required amount of hot milk and stir it well to remove lumps. Cold milk may cause clumping.
