Heavenly creamy corn

My sweet Isabelle is 9 months old today! We're off to the doctor this morning for her nine month check up. I'm excited to see what her stats are now. 

Friends, this is seriously the BEST corn I've ever eaten. EVER. I've made it three times this month already!

Prior to now, my favorite corn has always been Green Giant Niblets
or your basic roasted corn on the cob
But this!
This is like a combination of the two, but even BETTER.
(and let me interject here, it is nothing like creamed corn. NO NO NO. Megan doesn't do creamed corn.) 

Let's get started!

You'll need:
- 4 ears of corn
- 2 tbsp flour
- 3 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- a sprinkle of pepper
- 1 cup water
- 3 tbsp butter

Take your corn cobs and use a sharp knife to cut off the kernels into a bowl.

Use a butter knife or a spoon to scrape them again, getting out all the little pieces and juicy stuff. You'll know you've gotten it all when your ear looks....empty?

But be careful! It's messy! My counter looked like the scene of a corn war afterwards.

In a bowl, mix together:
- 2 tbsp flour
- 3 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- a sprinkle of pepper

Stir a cup of water into the flour mixture.

In the meantime, melt 3 tbsp of butter in a large flat pan or skillet. Set the temperature to medium-ish. Maybe medium low.

Add the corn and the flour-y water to the skillet.

Simmer for 45 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. At the beginning, your corn will look pretty watery, but don't give up. After 45 minutes, you'll have the most delicious corn you can imagine!

Don't try to rush the 45 minutes. It needs that time to simmer and get all thick and amazing. It's worth the wait!

Trust me, you need to make this TODAY. Your husband/boyfriend/kids will thank you for it. And then you can come thank me. Ready...GO!



Any guesses on Isabelle's weight, at 9 months? 

What's your favorite vegetable?

  11. If it's 1/2 as good as my kettle korn...on my blog...hint hint...(ha!) then I'm sure I'll become instantly addicted.

    Thanks a bunch (and I mean that both ways.) Lol.

    Sweet Isabelle - my guess, judging from the 18 month onesie you ordered ;) umm....21 pounds.

    I just totally cheated and hopped up to check the label on the 18 mo. onesies I have. It says 24-28 lbs., but I'm guessing just under.

    Surely you're home by now. Email me! I want to know! :)
