Snack: Homemade Cream Corn

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons non-hydrogenated
  • margarine or butter or 1 tablespoon oil + 1 tablespoon *bacon grease
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1tablesoon sugar
  • 3 cups frozen corn
  • 1 ½ cups cold milk
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions for Preparation

  1.  In a medium saucepan, fry the onion with the fat until golden brown.
  2. Add the seasonings and the frozen corn. Stir.
  3.  In a medium bowl, stir the flour into the milk until it is dissolved.
  4. Pour the milk mixture over the corn.
  5. Stir constantly while bringing up to a gentle boil.
  6.  Let cook until thickened. Add more milk if needed.
  7.  Add the parmesan cheese.

Optional: Use a hand blender right in the pot or transfer the corn to a blender to purée into a thinner consistency based on your family’s preference.

*Bacon grease is saturated fat. That means it is not a heart-healthy choice, but it certainly does have a lot of flavour. Save it in the freezer to use little amounts in recipes as a seasoning and use vegetable oil most often for frying.
