Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 8 ears fresh corn (Or 6 cups canned or frozen)
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs flour
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp sugar (Optional, or more to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Hold an ear of corn over a high walled bowl, then, using a sharp knife, cut off the kernels. Then, using a spoon or butter knife, scrape the cob to remove the corn pulp. Repeat for each ear.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the corn kernels and pulp, along with the flour. Sauté for about a minute to cook out the flour taste.
  • Turn heat to medium low, then stir in the cream and milk, as well as any desired seasonings. Stirring occasionally, let cook the corn and reduce slightly, about 20-25 minutes.
