I use to love creamed corn but can't figure out how to make it raw.
Please, does anyone have any idea on how to do it?
I tried blending it up but it made it soupy which was good but not creamed:(

Maybe try bledning a little, mashing a little, adding some sea salt & a dash of sweetened cashew milk? I havn't tried this but it sounds like it could work!

I was thinking on that line, i have some cashews here at home.
When i was growing up i use to love the creamed corn out of the can but of course i don't eat canned anything anymore:)
Thanks for the idea:)

Thanks for posting the recipes, i'll try them out.
Whenever something goes on sale i try to buy it out:)
My dh says i go overboard but with raw i don't know how to stop because if i can freeze it then it won't go bad so quick.

It's usually good to overstock than under, when it comes to food, especially if you can freeze it.

Hi there Bethanie, I always loved creamed corn! Many years ago at a Macrobiotic cooking class the instructor made a creamed corn casserole from fresh ears of corn. It was so delicious, better than any creamed corn I ever ate from a can. Everyone I made it for always loved it. My sister still asks me to make it when she visits. The recipe required me to buy a corn cutter and I believe the recipe would be very good raw too (the one she made was baked in the oven), although I haven't tried it yet. I got the corn cutter at a kitchen store but I am giving you a link on the internet so you can visually see a picture of what it looks like:
You run the corn up and down across the blade that is in the middle. I put the corn cutter on top of a large glass 9 x 13 dish and when you scrape the corn across the blade and it falls into the dish, someone it comes out creamed. It is amazing! I added salt, pepper and a little white miso mix with some water. The better quality and sweeter corn that you buy the better it is.
One last thought if you have a dehydrator large enough to fit a glass pie dish, you could dehydrate it for awhile to warm it, if you wanted.
Whatever you decide to make with your corn, I hope you have fun being creative!
Blessings and peace,

Funny how I"m sitting here eating my corn and this post appears...I've never been much of a corn eater but all the talk of sweet corn got me interested and today at Mother's Kitchen they had sweet corn, 2 for $1.00...so, I bought 4 ears and this is how I had it...and it was delicious...
I used two ears and cut the corn off the cob...put one cubed avocado in it and stirred it up real good...oh my...this is now my favorite dish...and how easy is that??
I'm think'n about going downstairs and cut'n up the other two ears...yum!!!!

I saw a corn soup made with coconut water and meat. I think it was a u tube video. He blended the corn with some coconut water and I think some coconut meat too along with a few other things that I can't recall. At the end he stired some more corn into it. It came out thick and creamy. It looked excellent, I plan on trying it sometime soon.

I'm going to try to make my old favorite raw sweet corn.
I'm going to cream it and add some agave syrup to it.
Thanks for all the tips and recipes.
GOING CORN CRAZY!
