Stir in some sugar. We use 1 tablespoon of sugar in this recipe to lớn really pull together all the flavors. It does wonders.Season with salt and pepper. Start out slow on the salt và pepper – just 50% teaspoon of kosher salt & 1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Taste it and decide if you need more.

Making a Roux

A roux is made whenever you combine a fat và flour. In my Bacon Jalapeño Creamed Corn (also amazing!) we use the rendered fat from the bacon khổng lồ make the roux. In this recipe we use butter.

When you fully combine butter and flour the fat molecules coat the starch molecules, allowing them lớn disperse evenly in your sauce & thicken it. The key to lớn a roux is two fold. First, you need to cook the butter & flour together khổng lồ cook out the raw taste of the flour. Second, you need to lớn slowly địa chỉ cửa hàng your liquid (in this case whole milk) khổng lồ the roux. Doing so will let the roux bởi vì its job properly and thicken up your sauce.

Unlike a traditional roux, we are adding butter, then corn, then flour. While it makes it a little trickier khổng lồ combine everything, it will totally work và you will have a great creamy sauce.


Frozen Corn or Fresh Corn

For the sake of convenience, I’m calling for frozen corn in this recipe. But, just like my Corn Chowder, the corn taste is significantly better when you are able to use fresh corn. The sauce và the corn combine better và that great sweet corn taste is perfectly distributed throughout the dish.

If you use fresh corn, you will need 3 cups or about 4 medium corn cobs. You will want to use the bundt pan trick khổng lồ cut the kernels off the cobb. Put the stalk of the corn through the hole in a bundt pan, & then using a sharp knife, cut down the length of the cob. The corn kernels will fall right into the bundt pan.
