Ingredients

  • 8 ears corn, husks and silk removed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Remove kernels: Cut off tip of each cob; stand in a wide shallow bowl. With a sharp knife, slice downward to remove kernels.

  2. Step 2

    Stand each cob over another wide shallow bowl. With the edge of a soup spoon, scrape downward to remove pulp.

  3. Step 3

    In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add corn kernels, pulp, and 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cover, and cook, until corn is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    Add cream and sugar; simmer, uncovered, until cream has thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
