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,

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

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

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
