  • 8 ears fresh corn
  • 1 small onion , diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup heavy cream (more if you'd like a creamier texture)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Combine onion and butter in a frying pan on the stove over medium heat.
  2. Cut the kernels off of each ear of corn using a small knife. After removing the kernels, use the back of a butter knife (the dull side) to scrape down each kernel of corn removing all of the pulp.
  3. Add the kernels and pulp to the frying pan along with the sugar & rosemary sprig. Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add in cornmeal and cook an additional 2 minutes while stirring.
  4. Add in cream, salt, pepper. Remove 2/3 cup of corn and puree in a blender or with a hand mixer.
  5. Return pureed corn to pan and cook until thickened and heated through. (If it becomes too thick, you can add in additional cream.)

  1. What is the controversy all about using canned corn and evaporated milk in chowders and soups? Thanks for enlightening me.
