Here's how to make this deliciousness!
1. Enlist the help of some friends, because it takes awhile to prepare the corn.
3. Cut the corn off of the cob. This is where it gets technical. You only want to cut off the top portion of the kernels; the portion that is arched. Just trust me on this one. And, you'll want a really sharp knife.
You should have a pile of pieces that looks something like this after this step:
4. Once the tops are removed, use the sharp slide of the blade and scrape it down the sides of the cob, extracting all of the creamy goodness of the cob.
The cob will look like the picture below once all of the cream is out.
5. Admire all of the creamy goodness that you've worked so hard to achieve.
And, the other end of the table:
There you have it! Super easy, super tasty, super homemade.
20 ears of corn
1 stick butter
salt and pepper to taste
Shuck all ears of corn and pull of silk. Using a very sharp knife, scrape the arched portions of the kernels into a large baking pan. Once all of the tops are off, go back over the cob with the sharp blade running along the sides of the ear, extracting the cream from under the kernels. Repeat with all ears of corn.
In a large skillet, melt butter. Add corn, with the juices, and cook about 15 minutes, over medium-high heat. Taste for doneness, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Adjust amounts as necessary. You can make more or less. This freezes well, just place what you would serve for a meal into a ziploc bag, remove excess air, seal and freeze.
