Traditional creamed corn gets its luscious richness not from cream or milk, but from the milky juice of the corn kernels and cob. Here, frozen corn steps in during the off-season and holiday months. It's simmered until tender, partially pureed and then thickened with a slurry of flour and water. You'll be surprised at the velvety soft texture and we'll be surprised if this isn't your new go-to creamed corn recipe.



  1. Add the corn and 1 1/2 cups water to a large pot or Dutch oven and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Add 2 cups of the corn and liquid to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir the pureed corn back into the pot and return to a simmer. 
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the flour and 2/3 cup water in a small bowl. Stir the slurry into the contents of the pot and season with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and another 1 teaspoon salt.
