Fresh Creamed Corn


Don't you just love the fresh sweet taste of summer corn? Well, I'd like to share a favorite dish of Mr. Precious and mine ~ creamed corn.

Select how many ears of corn you want and shuck the husks. Don't you hate trying to get all the little corn silk hairs out from between the kernels. Wash the corn, of course you know to wash it!

Then begin cutting the kernels off the cobbs.

Wah la! Do you like my Mary Engelbreit looking bowl? See the little cherries? I love cherries!

Oh, back to the corn.

Now melt about 3 tablespoon of margarine (or butter if you really want to do it up right!) in a large frying pan.

Add a little garlic powder and onions. I really prefer using green onions (hey, that's a song!) but didn't have any and just used the regular ole white one. See, I even have a rooster cutting board. Am I a cockadoodledoo lulu or what?


Stir and sautee the corn kernels until they are tender and the onions are just a little golden color.
Now let's make the white sauce. Melt more margarine or butter in a pan - 2 or 3 tablespoons, about 1/3 cup flour and then some milk. I really don't measure anything, so just decide how much milk you use by how much sauce you want.


"I'm melting! I'm melting! You cursed brat! Look what you've done!" I know, I'm a silly, but I love the move "The Wizard of Oz". I just couldn't help myself.
Slowly add your flour and stir. Notice it's 'Your Flour"!

Now stir constantly until those little flour lumps are all gone. I remove my pan from the burner for this and it gives me more control of the flour lumps. You know, there really should be a song about flour lumps, don't cha think?

Pour and stir the white sause into the sauteed corn and cook on a lower heat until it's all heated up through.

Pour into a pretty serving bowl and you're done! Oh, look, more cherries!

Add a little green veggie, some buttered bread and an ice cold glass of peach tea (yep, I even have some rooster glasses!) and you'll have a nice light summer supper. Hope you enjoy this!


Well, I didn't have any cherries, shoot! But I do have some strawberries! They will do nicely for dessert!


Are you full yet? I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Get outta that bed, wash your face and hands

Get outta that bed, wash your face and hands

Well, you get in that kitchen, make some noise with the pots and pans

I said, shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Shake, rattle and roll, shake, rattle and roll

Well, you won't do right to save your doggone soul

  1. Hi Sheila!
    Welcome to the Land of Blog! I just love your tunes! My dad was very musical, he played country fiddle and the sax. His sister played the honky tonk piano. What a grand time it was when they were together! I love all the old songs and my dad would teach me little songs like on your posts.
    I will be visiting you often!
    Hugs, Sherry

  3. You so should not have done that to me! I love corn in all forms!! Of course fresh i best, that looks sooooo delish! And I'm kind of hungry, so I'm gonna make it with canned corn cause that's all I got!

    I do have some corn planted though but Caribbean corn is different to the sweet succulent corn I have had in the states for sure!

    Great Post!

  6. Your creamed corn looks so good. I haven't had any fresh corn yet this year.

    I have some of the same books you have on your sidebar. And, was that rooster in our Rooster Parade?
