How to make canned corn taste better
Canned corn can taste like homemade with a few simple steps
Servings 2 people
- 1 15 ounce can Sweet corn 1 bag frozen sweet corn kernels will substitute
- 2 tablespoons butter salted or unsalted
- 1/4 teaspoon salt I prefer sea salt, see note 1
Drain half the water from your can of corn and place the corn in a 9" skillet. If you are making a larger batch, use any size pan or pot that will hold the corn without spilling.
Add the butter and salt and bring the skillet to a gentle simmer over medium high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium and stir occasionally so the corn doesn't burn. Cook until the liquid is almost totally gone and just a couple of tablespoons remain in the bottom.
Note 1: If your corn is unsalted, consider using 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add half and taste it first, then add the rest if needed.
