beckham place creamed corn
We spent a glorious week at a family reunion in Southern California a few weeks ago. While there we enjoyed some wonderful meals with family. One afternoon Grandpa grilled salmon and Grandma made sides, one of which was this creamed corn. My son calls it "cheesy corn" and loved it the first time he tried it. He talks about the cheesy corn almost Grandma made and he has turned his nose up at the corn I have served since because I did not have the recipe until now. Grandma says that her daughter got this recipe while working at a Scottish restaurant many years ago.
beckham place creamed corn (Grandma Anne got the recipe from Beckham Place)
2 packages (20 ounces) frozen kernel corn (it tasted like fresh corn to me!)
8 ounces whipping cream (Grandma likes to cook healthily so used half and half)
8 ounces homogenized milk
1 teaspoon salt
4-5 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons flour
Combine all ingredients except last two and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. Blend butter with flour, add to the corn, mix well and remove from heat. Serves 8.
Variation: Put finished corn in a heat proof casserole. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and place under a broiler until evenly browned.
