Easy Homemade Creamed Corn Recipe

Today, I'm going to share my easy homemade creamed corn recipe with you. My family loves it, and I think yours will too! The recipe below feeds up to 8 people. And this is soooo much better than canned creamed corn, which I will not eat at all. Sorry Green Giant et al. 

Patricia's Creamed Corn Recipe

  1. To begin with, you'll need 15 to 20 ears of corn.
  2. Next, clean the corn.
  3. After cleaning, cut off the kernels.
  4. As the kernels are removed, slide the edge of the knife down each cob to extract the remaining juices. 😉This part can be a bit messy but it's worth it.
  5. In the skillet, melt 2 sticks of margarine on high. It will melt faster if you cut each stick into 4 or 5 smaller sections.
  6. Put your corn kernels and extracted juices in the skillet once the margarine has melted.
  7. Stir until the corn is coated with the butter. 
  8. Pour in a full can of evaporated milk (shake well before opening).
  9. Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium heat. Cook at this setting until the margarine and evaporated milk start to thicken. Stir frequently so the corn doesn't stick to the bottom of the skillet. Occasionally, as you stir, use the spoon to gently squeeze more juice out of the kernels.
  10. Once the margarine and milk start to thicken, turn the heat down to medium low and continue stirring frequently. Ingredients will thicken more.
  11. The entire cooking time will take 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you find that it's thickening faster than this, you can turn the corn to low until the remainder of your meal is cooked. Continue to stir so it will stay warm.

NOTE: If you're feeding up to only 4 people, you can scale down to 10 ears of corn, 1 stick of margarine, and about 1/2 a can of evaporated milk. Cook time will be about 30 to 45 minutes for this scaled down version.


Enjoy and God bless,

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
