Food Network Magazine Creamed Corn

I have been making an effort this summer to use as many fresh in-season vegetables as I can. It saves me money on my food budget and is better for my family's overall health, since the vegetables are fresher and haven't traveled as far. Recently, I have been trying to take advantage of the great prices on corn and been making a number of corn recipes. The July/August issue of the Food Network Magazine had a recipe for Grandma Moore's Creamed Corn, which looked very easy and perfect to use fresh corn.

This recipe has 4 ingredients, including salt and pepper. The total time is 50 minutes, all of which is active. I followed the recipe as stated, but found that I had to add additional water, since I wasn't able to get enough from scrapping the cob. I would estimate that I used approximately 1/2 cup of additional water.

I loved the smoky flavor that the bacon provided in this recipe. I had never made creamed corn before and this recipe was very easy to make and follow. Previously, I had only had canned creamed corn and was never a fan, but this recipe has converted me to making it homemade, it was absolutely delicious!

For the recipe go to Food Network Magazine Grandma Moore's Creamed Corn.
