"Then plough deep while sluggards sleep, and you shall have corn to sell and to keep."
-Benjamin Franklin, Genius
I will tell you straight up that I love creamed corn and most recipes are really high in fat or salt. It depends on whether you buy frozen or canned or make your own, but most all of them are just over the top nutritionally. This recipe gives you so much of what I love in creamed corn: fresh corn flavor, sweetness and (best of all) creaminess. Serve this with any comfort food you choose: Oven Fried Chicken, Pulled Chicken Barbecue Sandwiches or Oven Fried Fish.
Canola oil is the oil pressed from rape seeds. Pure rape seed oil contains toxins and canola oil is a processed version that has had the toxins removed.
There are so many good things about this oil. Like olive oil, it is very high in monounsaturated fat and very low in saturated fat. The polyunsaturated fats are mostly Omega-3 type.
Canola oil is a staple in my kitchen and should be in yours. I use it when I want an oil that won't add flavor to a recipe and for this reason I love to use it in baking.
