I made it last night - I cooked it in the microwave, and then cut off the corn and used some of it in a recipe....it is SO SO different to the tinned stuff with its chemicals, sugar, salt etc.
At the moment they are only about 50 cents each now and very sweet and delicious - i will not buy the tinned ones again.
Oh, Finy! I am so glad to hear you have now gone 'off' tinned corn!!! It just is nothing like the fresh or frozen stuff at all!! I guess it is okay for certain recipes as it is quick, but even frozen corn is quick for such things and tastes oh! so much better!! As a kid I would enjoy the Heinz tinned CREAMED CORN on hot buttered toast as a snack in winter, but that was about the extent of our tinned corn usage!! I have NEVER been fond of tinned vegetables at all, especially peas!!! Fresh IS best and I was raised to eat what was in season, or frozen( at home by mum) while in-season for use throughout the year!! Mum was so organised with this sort of money-saving stuff!!!
No. I don't have it as often as I like. My daughter doesn't like it, so we don't bother cooking it. We like to have food we can all share. I should have had it the other night when she stayed at a friends, but we decided to go out for dinner instead. I'll have to make a mental note to have some when she is out next time. Absolutely love fresh corn !!!
Fresh, and even Frozen, Corn is the ONLY way to go with corn!!! Yum!!! with lashings of gorgeous butter!!!! I have not had tinned corn in well over 40 yhears, when we would sometimes have it when I was a kid! Even back then, we delighted in our home grown Summer corn on the cob which was such a delicious and easy to grow item!! Mum always blanched and froze our In-season Vegetables so we could enjoy them long after the season had ended! I even still have the tiny corn-cob spikes with which to hold the cobs while eating them, which I had when I was little!! I love corn on the cob and it is nearly always cheap up here in Nth Qld! By the way, I always cook it in the microwave, as it is so quick with no mess and no fuss!
I've never 'made' sweetcorn, but my father used to grow it, back in the 60's, but not really successfully. I used to buy it fresh from a supermarket, & cook it in the microwave, but now I just buy it in a pack of 4 small tins. It keeps better that way! I've also seen the frozen corn on & off the cob in the supermarket.
