Tips for making old fashioned creamed corn recipe

This old fashioned cream corn recipe can be thickened to your liking by simply cooking it longer if you like it thicker or reducing the cooking time to make it a bit thinner.

You can also reduce the amount of cayenne pepper added or omit it completely if you don’t wish to have your corn spiced. We love it with the little kick to it because it adds a great contrast to the sweetness.
