Thread: Creamed corn - what is it?

  1. #1

    Question

    Hi Buddies,

    since I live in Germany I don`t know all your food... and the year I have spent in NY is so far away - almost 15 years. My god... I am getting old [img]graemlins/ugh.gif[/img] . But back to my question: What exactly is creamed corn? And can I substitute regular corn where the kernels come in cans? I want to make cornbread and the recipe says to use creamed corn...

    Thanks alot [img]smile.gif[/img]

    We can buy creamed corn in a can here. If you were making it you would heat a little butter in a pan, add flour and milk and warm until it thickens. Put the mixture in a food processor with half the corn and puree then add the rest of the corn and put back on the stove to heat. It is creamy from the milk and the pureed corn, but still has some kernels. In a recipe, I would think if you pureed the corn with a little milk so it was sort of soupy, that would work fine. Good luck. [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    I believe creamed corn is just corn that has been mushed a bit. It is not kernels of corn, more like a lumpy sauce, about the consistancy of apple sauce but with small corn lumps (like chopped up corn kernels). I would take canned corn and put it in the blender with some of the liquid to make this.
    It does make the cornbread nice and moist, so definitely worth a try!
