Creamed Silver Queen Corn
Silver Queen is a variety of white corn with milky, creamy kernels. It’s beloved for its lightly sweet flavor. Don’t be tempted to just cut the corn from the cob with a knife. A corn cutter or creamer creates much, much creamier corn. I use the same wooden corn cutter that my grandmother Sa used. It’s one of my prized possessions. Look for your own antique cutter at estate sales—or for brand-new ones made of wood or stainless steel at hardware and cookware stores. No matter the material, this Southern tool makes creamed corn like nothing else.
