Creamed Sweet Corn

5 cups

We made this dish with white sweet corn, but yellow or bicolor corn would be delicious as well.


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1 small onion, cut into ¼-inch dice

  • 4 cups fresh corn kernels (about 8 ears)

  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream


  1. Stir together flour, sugar, salt, ginger, and white pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes (do not brown). Add corn; cook, stirring, until just tender, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with flour mixture, tossing to coat; cook 1 minute. Add cream; cook, stirring, until corn is tender and mixture is thickened, about 3 minutes.
