I fell in love with creamed corn during my year as an exchange student in the US. It was of the canned variety, which I had never encountered before. (Nor since - it doesn't exist here.) I've tried making my own a few times before, but I think this was the best attempt yet. If you have a great recipe, by the way - I'd love to try it!
I'm thinking about different ways to make this blog more active again - I miss daily updates. One way is to stop writing recipes in Swedish. My Swedish recipe page does have a lot of visits, too, but not nearly as many as this blog, and it does take a lot of time to do both. So, right now, I'm considering not updating in Swedish anymore. What do you think? Would it bother you very much?
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp butter
500 g corn (frozen, and thawed is totally ok)
100 ml water
1 tsp sugar
pinch of nutmeg
100 ml cream
salt, black pepper
Fry the onion on medium heat, in half of the butter. The onion should soften, but not color. Add the corn, water and the remaining butter. Cook under a lid for about 10-15 minutes.
Add sugar, nutmeg and cream, and cook without a lid for five minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
