Is anyone getting tired of corn on the cob ?  probably not since good corn is only available around now.  Here is a recipe by Alton Brown called " Not your Grandmas creamed corn" I don't know about his grandma, but my Grandma was a superb cook.  Though I never had her creamed corn, everything else she made was delicious.  My Grandma Brozovich didn't speak english well, and I don't remember any grandmother - granddaughter talks.  But When we went to her farm in Price she always cooked a delicious meal with all the ingredients fresh from HER farm.  We were usually lucky to go home with fresh baked bread, bottled sauerkraut and more.  So my grandma would have made a killer creamed corn.  This one is great too.  Just another idea for fresh sweet corn.  It keeps well and is good when the corn is maybe a day or two old.   I hope we're all enjoying the bounty of the harvest.
