How to Make It

  2. Combine 1/4 cup milk and cornstarch; set aside. Combine remaining 3/4 cup milk and onion in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes; remove and discard onion.

  3. Add corn to hot milk, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add cornstarch mixture, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.
