Southern Creamed Corn

Anita and I just love sweet corn from My Dad’s Sweet Corn, a farm in nearby Tipton, Indiana. When Anita asked that I make a traditional Southern creamed corn using some of the corn we had on hand, I didn’t hesitate. This version is exactly what you expect – creamy and sweet. And packed with fantastic fresh corn flavor. Nothing beats it.

Southern Creamed Corn

I prefer to use fresh corn when I make southern creamed corn, but the season is short here in Indiana. And worse, winter is long. It’s not quite the same, but when I can’t get fresh corn I use the corn I’ve put up for winter.

Also try my deconstructed Mexican street corn and my slow cooker creamed corn.
