Creamed Corn

Does anyone make creamed corn from frozen? I used to make a corn souffle a long time ago. Have a hankering for some again but all my recipes use a can of creamed corn. I no longer buy canned vegies. I do however have frozen corn from last summer.

All the recipes I see for making creamed corn start off with the corn scraped fresh off the cob and thereby getting the juices to make the cream. But my corn is already off the cob...

does anyone think if I can just zap some in a blender it will work?

I would.

I would hold out a 1/2 cup or so of the whole corn kernels to add back to the pureed corn.

Talking about corn, I noticed on my latest bag of frozen sweetcorn kernels it says that they must be cooked before eating. Anyone know why? I'm sure I've just defrosted them to use in salads and things.

I'm a cynic, so I have a couple of possible explanations.

1) They realized there was a minute chance of germs, so they are covering their butts. They don't want you to sue them for getting sick.

2) They took a page out of the North American food book and decided that they don't have to keep it clean, just put the onus for germ killing on the customer.

I would just give them a rinse and use them like you always do. Rules are meant to be broken!

OMG!!!!! (sorry Addie)

Don't eat RAW corn! Don't you know your hair turns to silk and when the temp is over 2000 degrees you suddenly go POP and turn white and fluffy spongie, sort of....

Since you already have frozen corn, just give it a buzz with the boat motor (AKA immersion blender), et voila, creamed corn! Or the blender works too. As Aunt Bea said, hold out some whole kernals.

BTW, I saw nothing wrong with your bread with "handles".

Neither did I. A cold night in March in this Winter that just won't leave. A hot cup of cocoa with a grilled cheese sandwich with handles or some toast with handles for dunking. Nothing better than comfort food.
