Farmers' Markets: Fresh corn makes a flavorful souffle

Thursday, July 13, 2000

Tested by Arlene Burnett

You're in for a treat with today's recipe. Corn Souffle bursts with fresh corn taste -- especially if you use fresh corn off the cob. Removing the kernels is easy: Hold the ear with the bottom end on the counter, take a sharp knife and cut down the ear. The amount yield of kernels from each ear is approximate; if the ears are large, you might get about 1/2 cup. We needed 21/2 ears of corn when we tested this recipe. To cook the corn, we steamed it for about 6 minutes.

Corn Souffle

3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup milk
1 cup home-cooked or canned corn
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated onion
4 egg yolks, beaten
4 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in corn, lemon juice, onion and beaten egg yolks. Let stand until cool. Beat egg whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar. Beat until soft peaks form. Fold gently into corn mixture. Spoon into greased 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Serves 6.
