Fresh Creamed Corn with Roasted Jalapeño
6 ears super sweet corn, shucked
2 oz butter
1/2 heavy cream
1 pinch cayenne
1 jalapeño roasted, minced, skinned and deseeded
1 tbsp garlic chives
With a knife, cut down each ear of corn to remove the kernels. Put the corn kernels in a large bowl. Using a spoon, scrape any remaining corn or starch out of the cob and into the bowl of kernels.
Using a microplane, zest the lime and then cut the lime in half.
In a saucepan melt the butter over medium heat and add the corn. Then add the juice of half of the lime into the corn. Cook the corn for about 5 minutes or until most of the moisture has evaporated.
Once the moisture is cooked out, add the cream, cayenne, lime zest, and roasted jalapeno. Add salt to taste and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes.
Garnish with the garlic chives and serve immediately.
