6 - 8 Ears of fresh corn
2 strips of bacon (or)
1/2 Stick butter
Salt and Pepper
Dash of sugar
1 T. Flour

Directions:
Directions:
Peel the corn, remove the silk, and wash each cob
Stand each cob in a bowl, and cut the corn from the cob with a small sharp knife. When finished, scrape each cob with a spoon - over the bowl to capture the white juicy residue. "This is the flavor."
In a pan, fry the bacon; when bacon is cooked completely, break it up in small pieces. Dump the corn into the same pan over the pieces of bacon. Season with salt, pepper, and a dash of sugar. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. Let simmer on a low heat with a cover. In a small bowl, mix the Tablespoon of flour in 1/4 cup of water, stir until creamy. Then pour over the corn and stir until it is mixed well. Allow to simmer for another few minutes on a low heat. Taste a sampling to ensure the flavor is right to your liking. The corn should have a light creamy texture and ready to serve. Butter can be substituted for the bacon and its drippings. Either way you choose, you will enjoy the taste of the fresh corn. When corn is fresh and in season, look for certain hybrids, such as "silver queen", or "sweet corn". I hope you like this dish and prepare it every chance you can for your family.

This is a great vegetable to serve all times of the year! Another recipe of my Mother, Josephine. Creamed corn is always served as a side for our Thanksgiving Dinners. Another family tradition!
