Creamed Corn

My Mom brought some creamed corn with her from Baxley. I haven't had this dish in a long, long time. It's one of the best dishes in the world. Creamed corn is not made with cream (although my Mom does put in a touch of milk to keep it from being too watery). It's the way you cut the corn off the cob. Instead of cutting the corn right at the cob, you cut it away from the cob and it lets the juice out of the corn (which is creamy). Then, my Mom adds a small bit of butter, a little milk and salt and pepper. So good!!!

2.718 makes it with bacon fat which of course is even better :)

and only Silver Queen corn will do.

Although, I have heard in recent years that there is a new variety that comes really close.
