Creamed Corn

I love creamed corn - especially with mashed potatoes. It's one of those comfort foods from my childhood. I've been wanting to try this recipe for awhile now, but wanted to use fresh corn instead of frozen, and have been patiently waiting for fresh corn to make an appearance at the grocery store. It's still a little early in the season, but keep this one handy for your summer BBQs!

4 ears corn, shucked
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. white pepper (regular will work too)
2 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Tbsp. flour

Cook corn in boiling water for approximately 5 minutes. Cool slightly and cut corn off ears. Combine corn, cream, milk, salt, sugar and pepper on stove top. Simmer 5 minutes. Blend butter and flour together in a small bowl; add to corn to thicken. Mix well. Remove from heat.
