Nicci's Creamed Corn


  • • Kosher salt
  • • 5 ears corn, shucked
  • • 2 tablespoons butter
  • • 1 cup whole milk
  • • Leaves from 4 sprigs fresh tarragon, chopped

My dear friend Nicci is the one who suggested I add fresh tarragon to creamed corn. To be honest, the idea did not appeal to me, but I gave it a try and fell in love. Every once in a while I don't mind being proven wrong... at least in the kitchen! 


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the corn 5 minutes. Drain, cool, and cut the kernels from the cobs.
  2. Melt the butter in the cast-iron skillet on low heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes.
  3. Increase the heat to medium. Slowly add the milk and stir until almost all the milk is absorbed. Taste and adjust the salt. Remove from the heat and stir in tarragon.
  4. Makes 4 servings
