Creamed Corn

Nothing says summer more than fresh, sweet corn. I love cooking with corn but leave the shucking for my husband. When I offer to make this creamed corn recipe he is more than willing to take on the shucking task. . . and the cleanup. The combination of shallots, corn, cream and fresh dill is lovely and a perfect side dish for everything from grilled ribeyes to fried chicken.

1 - Shuck four or five ears of summer corn making sure to remove the corn silk fully.

2 - Finely chop two shallots and sautee in a tablespoon of olive oil until translucent.

3 - With a sharp knife, cut off the kernels of corn. Add these to the pan of shallots.
