Chef Symon's Ohio Creamed Corn

It seems like it's been a lifetime since I blogged a recipe! I am so happy to have things somewhat back to normal. Thankfully, I was able to have Molly taken by a rescue on Friday evening. She'll be living with a foster family until she's adopted! All of the money raised was used on her vet expenses, plus I scheduled a dental cleaning for her that her foster family will bring her to, and I was able to purchase 6 months of heart worm and flea/tick medication for her. I can't thank you all enough, those who baked, those who bidded on items, it means the world to me!  To say "Thank you!!!" there will be a few giveaways coming soon!

Now, to play catch up! This was my selection for Symon Sundays 2 weeks ago. I knew corn was going out of season, and I wanted to make sure we hit this one before it was long gone. Now I'm from Ohio, but I've never had creamed corn with bacon, cilantro and lime before! It was definitely interesting and different, but really, really good. It wasn't overly creamy and actually had tons of flavor. The lime and cilantro brought out the natural sweet flavor in the corn, and it tasted so fresh!

I'm so glad to hear that Molly's all taken care of and that you were able to do so much with the money!

That creamed corn looks fabulous. I'm beginning to think that maybe I did something wrong to mine, which is why you all liked it so much more than I did...

I'm going to have to give this a go with canned corn. It does look tasty!
