Skillet Creamed Corn

In the back of the novel, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe", author Fannie Flag shares some of Sipsey's recipes.  Creamed corn is among those and so we decided to give it a try the other night.  This was so good; though, I didn't have 6 ears (I only had 4) and they were yellow.  The end result was worth fighting over who was getting seconds and who was not.  Definitely a fight worth fighting.  You'll know what I mean when you give this recipe a try.

Creamed corn
6 ears sweet white corn
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 -1 cup milk and water ( I used 1/2 cup of ea. milk and water)
Salt and pepper

Cut corn off the cob, then scrape the cob down with the back of a knife to get what’s left.  Cook w/butter over low heat and slowly add milk and water and salt and pepper ‘til you like it.  Stir for 10 minutes ‘til just right.

This recipe is so simple it has you wondering, "Is that it?"  And, yep, it is so don't go meddling with perfection.
