Melanie W.'s Creamed Corn


This was simpler than I expected. Sure, it took a little bit of time to cut the corn off the cob (I decreased the recipe down to 5 ears), but once that was done it took no time at all! I did have to go buy some turmeric because I didn't have any, but it was worth it because I've made a handful of recipes lately that call for it.

I didn't use a fresh sprig of rosemary so I threw in some dried rosemary leaves. I wish I had read all the directions beforehand because then I would have known you're supposed take the rosemary sprig out at the end and it doesn't stay in the corn! Knowing that I wouldn't have used dried rosemary, or at least used less than what I did. My corn had a nice rosemary flavor, but it was a bit on the overpowering side.

I like this corn recipe a lot, but I don't think I'd make it very often. I'm not really into creamy vegetables and plain corn is equally as good, and healthier. Like someone else said this would be good for Thanksgiving or something.
