Grandma’s creamed corn

Grandma Emily

Growing up we had huge Thanksgiving feasts with my large Polish family, hosted by my funny, beautiful Grandma Emily. She and my Grandpa ran several food businesses with the help of their seven children, including a Polish deli and the Grain of Salt lounge in Chicago, and the Rincon Market in Tucson, Arizona. She passed away last year and she is terribly missed. Every year for Thanksgiving I make sure we have some of her famous creamed corn on the table (gluten-free). No, it’s not made from fresh corn…but some dishes from our childhood can’t be messed with. It’s delicious and easy!

  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 2 16z packages frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 C whipping cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 T sugar
  • fresh ground pepper to taste

Melt the butter and the cornstarch together (either on the stove top or in the microwave). Stir in the corn, cream, salt and sugar and heat until the mixture has thickened. It will have to get hot enough either on the stove or microwave to bubble a little in order to thicken. Add the fresh ground pepper to taste and serve.
