If the appetizer is sold out at the local grocery store, this recipe will get the job done in a pinch and works well alongside other sides for Turkey Day.

For the purposes of this recipe there will be a focus on Green Giant Niblets Corn, but any frozen brand will do.

Cooking Fresh Corn

Fresh corn, bought by the ear, can be substituted for frozen brand as well. You'll have to adjust the quantity of corn to accommodate this recipe, however. If you want to make the same yield as the four cups of frozen corn kernels, you'll need to use about 5 1/2 ears of small sweet yellow corn in this recipe.[3]

Comments

  • You may also use varying amounts of the butter and cornstarch called for in the above recipe. Depending on your preference, you may be able to use up to 3/4 cup of cornstarch and as low as 1/2 cup of butter. Be sure to watch the corn and taste it periodically before you adjust the amounts of the ingredients.[2]
  • Flour is acceptable as an alternative to cornstarch, but be sure to use twice as much you would cornstarch. The recipe may also take longer to cook.[4]
