BEST EVER CREAMED CORN~ CROCK POT STYLE!




The preparation of holiday turkey and dressing, along with grandmother's
homemade gravy, is almost a religious experience in the south. 
Mother would collect all her tried and true recipes clipped
from the newspaper column of Craig Claiborne and decide which
ones would be featured on her menu for the current year!

I learned to take a few shortcuts on certain side dishes by 
using a slow cooker or crockpot if you will.
This year, our best southern cream corn has been requested,
and this one is just befitting of my new autumn crockpot.

When it comes preparing this ritual meal, no one 
gets in the way of using a slow cooker. 

I selected my vintage Thanksgiving casserole dish
to display our southern cream corn on the sideboard!
Good lord...I looked back through the years and realized
it is now forty years old!

Y'all need to try this side dish recipe....
it is easy, and is absolutely scrumptious!!!



BEST EVER CREAMED CORN~SLOW COOKER STYLE
8 oz. cream cheese, cut into pieces
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 T. sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pounds frozen corn 




Combine ingredients in slow cooker. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. At about 3 hours it will completely come together. Allow to cook for the full 4 hours for the best results.




"I overheard the people talking...
we are going to eat a turkey!
I think I am emotional about that....."
