HOW TO PICK THE FRESHEST CORN ON THE COB
So, in order to perfect this Spicy Creamed Corn recipe, you should know a few things about how to spot the freshest corn at your local farmers’ market, or grocery store.
Here are a few tips:
- The husk should be bright green in color and wrapped tightly around the cob
- If the husk feels dry, it’s not a good choice
- Check for holes (this could indicate insects inside the corn)
- The corn silk should be light brown or gold, in color
- Squeeze for firmness (up and down the entire cob)
- Keep at room temperature if using the same day
- Place in fridge (with husks in tact and wrapped tightly) if not using immediately
WHAT IS CREAMED CORN?
Traditional creamed corn, also known as cream style sweet corn is made by puréeing a portion of the sweet corn kernels. This releases starchy liquid into the corn mixture creating a creamy corn dish.
My recipe for Spicy Creamed Corn on the Cob keeps the corn intact, so the addition of heavy cream helps to provide for the creaminess of this summertime side dish.
Alternatively, you can cut the corn from the cob, prior to making this recipe. In doing so, I suggest using only one stick of butter and cutting the cream by half.
TIPS ON MAKING THE BEST SPICY CREAMED CORN ON THE COB
Honestly, this corn on the cob recipe could not be easier. Follow these simple tips and I can assure you, you will be preparing this fabulous summer side dish, all year long:
- one ear sliced into three pieces is an adequate serving
- remove all of the silk from the corn
- use salted butter
- do NOT leave out the spice (fresh jalapeños can be replaced with cayenne pepper)
- cut the corn into equal pieces (this will help the corn to cook more uniformly)
- use a slow simmer
- taste for salt
- serve immediately covered with the spicy creamed mixture
HOW TO SERVE SPICY CREAMED CORN ON THE COB
Are you an “eat off the cob” or “cut from the cob” kind of person? Regardless, this Spicy Creamed Corn on the Cob can be served, either way! This creamy corn recipe pairs perfectly with your favorite barbecued meats and is the perfect compliment to ribs, chicken, pork, steak, or even scallops.
How to store creamed corn on the cob
Cut the corn from the cob. Store in an airtight container with the remaining sauce in the fridge. This Spicy Corn recipe will last in the fridge for two to three days. Freezing is not recommended.
To reheat creamed corn, place in the microwave or saucepan.Print

He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey.

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
