Creamed corn (which is also known by other names, such as "cream-style corn") is a soup or sauce made by melting butter and adding flour, milk, canned corn, and optionally some spices. It is a well known State food of Iowa and a common part of Midwestern American cuisine, typically sold canned by firms such as Del Monte Foods. It is an almost soupy version of sweetcorn, but unlike other preparations of sweetcorn, creamed corn is partially purÃ©ed, releasing the liquid contents of the kernels. Sugar and starch may be added and in home-made version, some variety of milk, perhaps even cream. In store-bought canned preparations, adding milk is less common.
