Creamed Corn

I admit I remember loving the creamed corn that came out of a can. Little did I know that canned cream corn doesn’t even contain cream! I guess all the liquid counted as the creaminess?!? I wanted to make a creamed corn with a little more substance and density, and actually have some cream in the recipe! This is one of the BEST tasting creamed corn recipes you will ever try, this I can guarantee. Everyone who has ever tried it asked for the recipe and now I can share it with everyone at once! 🙂
