  • How do you fix whole kernel corn?

    I'm to take some corn to Thanksgiving dinner. I don't want corn-on-the-cob because being I can't eat it off the cob with my braces. I don't want a corn casserole because the male folk will whine. I'm looking for the best way to flavor frozen or canned whole kernel corn. Any suggestions other than a lot of butter and salt?

     Tree... in my family we always cook frozen corn in milk and butter salt and pepper and a titch of sugar... then simmer for about 30-40 minutes...any other way just has no taste!

     Lime and Chili powder! Om nom nom nom!

     

    I live in Cali, so that's my "default seasoning mode" right there. Fresh lime juice squeezed over every veggie in reach and then a generous shake of a Mexican chili blend and a touch of sea salt. If it's fruit, it's lime and ginger.

    I vote for the cream cheese one!  Just a thought...you could always add just a bit of red pepper for a splash of color.

    The silliest thing---- I was at my MIL's one day and watched how she prepared the can of corn.  After heating it up, she just put on a big blob of butter, then sprinkled it with salt & pepper.  Why hadn't I thought of that?  It was dang good!  I agree though about adding just a pinch of sugar.  

    When I boil corn on the cob, I usually put salt, sugar, and lemon juice in the water.

    We went to our favorite restaurant and on their special was cheesy corn...It was really good, so I asked how it was made....The chef just put Queso cheese sauce in it...It was really good and that is how I make mine now....He used a good canned corn whereas I use frozen corn....

    False
  • Re: How do you fix whole kernel corn?

    I do the cream cheese too, it's always a winner.  Frozen corn only - it doesn't taste as good using canned. Then I add pimientos, white pepper & fresh chives.  I don't use  any butter though, don't need it IMO.

    Tree, this has nothing to do with whole kernel corn, but, Stick out tongue, if you like creamed corn, try John Copes in the freezer section. It's very good!

  • Re: How do you fix whole kernel corn?

    In addition to the butter, salt and pepper, my grandmother always added a little "thickening" as she called it - a spoon or 2 of flour whisked into 1/2 cup or so of milk.
