Cooking creamed corn. The corn is cut off the cob into a cooking pan.

Creamed corn (which is also known by other names, such as cream-style corn) is a type of creamed food made by combining pieces of whole sweetcorn with a soup of milky residue from pulped corn kernels scraped from the cob.[1] Originating in Native American cuisine, it is now most commonly eaten in the Midwestern and Southern United States. It is an almost soupy version of sweetcorn, but unlike other preparations of sweetcorn, creamed corn is partially puréed, releasing the liquid contents of the kernels.
