This is NOT the creamed corn of our childhood. That gelatinous goop that came out of can…no way. This is creamy and savoury and a perfect bed underneath cod, tilapia or roasted chicken. Going into the season of fresh veg, this is the perfect side dish for all that corn on the cob that you’re not sure what to do with. Let me know how yours turns out!

4 ears of corn

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1 small minced onion

olive oil

1 c. water

salt and pepper

1 tsp. sugar

chili flakes

1 cup half and half

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent.  Use a sharp knife and putting a cob on its end vertically, slice the kernels off the cob and put in with the onions and garlic. Cook the kernels for about 5 minutes. Add the one cup of water and saute until the water cooks down. Add the sugar, chili flakes (to your taste!) and the half and half. Turn heat down to medium and saute until thickened and creamy.

OPTION: To make the creamed corn extra thick, I take a couple of scoops of it and whiz it in the food processor, add it back to the batch, saute and serve. Yummmm!!!
