HOW TO COOK CANNED CORN ON THE STOVE

Cooking canned corn isn’t just as easy as heating up the corn in the can. Well, not if you want the corn to taste really good! You really need to know how to cook canned corn on the stove if you want to make your tongue happy too!

It’s true, you COULD just heat up the corn in the can. In fact, you could eat the corn straight from the can raw.

IS CANNED CORN ALREADY COOKED?

The answer to the question is canned corn already cooked is “Yes, it is cooked enough for you to eat it”. In fact, corn straight out of the can isn’t bad at all. It is fresh and has a certain pop and crunch to it!

HOW DO I SEASON CANNED CORN?

There are basic elements to flavoring almost any canned vegetable.

  1. Salt and pepper
  2. Butter
  3. Sugar
  4. Red Pepper flakes (optional and depends on your taste)

If you have read any of the other “how to cook canned” green beans, peas, peas and carrots, etc. Then you might note that some of them recommend using bouillon in the dish. I don’t recommend that for corn, but you could try it and see if you like it.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz can of corn
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Open the can and drain off any packing water. Replace about ½ cup of fresh tap water in the can.
  • Pour the contents of the can (corn and water) into a small saucepan and set on the stove top on medium heat.
  • Add the butter and sugar and stir well and often.
  • Once the butter is melted, taste the corn and add salt and pepper. About ½ tsp of each should be about right depending on your tastes.

Notes

  • Make sure to drain off the water from the can and use fresh water.
  • To really add flavor, use broth instead of water. 
  • PRO TIP: Bringing out the corns natural flavor only requires butter, salt, pepper and sugar BUT if you REALLY want to add a lot of flavor add just a pinch of cayenne and 1/2 tsp of lemon juice. It'll make your mouth happy!

A VERSE TO SHARE

Some days are super hard, I know that you know this. As Mr. Loaves and Dishes says, those are the days that mean the most. It sure doesn’t feel that way when you are going through them.

However, at our age and looking back over our lives, we see that those days ARE the ones where you learn what you are made of. We see that those are the days where you decided, “I have to learn how to handle this”.

Perhaps you have one of those days and you simply gave up. I have certainly done that. There have been terrible days when I simply came home, got in bed and pulled the cover over my head.

The day that I learned that Mr. Loaves and Dishes had lost his leg in an accident and I went to see him in the hospital (we weren’t married then and we weren’t even dating either. In fact, we had broken up and were not really friends).

THAT DAY…

That day, I came home from the hospital and got in bed and hugged my dog and pulled my quilt up over my head. I layed there until it was dark outside and my kids were saying, “Mom? Are we going to eat dinner?”.

You see? That was all that I had the energy to do.

It is in those times that we have to learn to lean on God instead of trying to find our own strength. I have learned to chant the Lord’s Prayer, that is what helps me. Other’s find comfort in verses of the Bible such as the one that follows. What works for you?

Psalm 46: 1-3

God is our refuge and strength,

   an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

   and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam

   and the mountains quake with their surging.

Wendi, I love your recipes. They are simple, easy to make, and delicious. I look forward to your emails to see what comes next. But, most of all, I love the Bible verses that you use after every recipe. This displays the true love that you share with others because you not only share the recipes of food for the body, but also food for the soul and spirit. Just like our bodies need food for nourishment in order for us to remain strong and in good health, our Spirit also need food and nourishment for the same reason and has to be fed with the Word of God. I look for your scriptures every time I go to your website. In fact, I look for the scriptures first and get so excited about what the next scriptures will be. Thank you for this and thank you so much for letting God use you to spread the Gospel in this way. Keep up the good work. Love you in Christ Jesus. God bless.

Alma, you are a pure joy! Thank you so much for leaving me such a sweet comment! I always say a little prayer before I write the "A Verse to Share" and ask the Lord to let it find its way to the right person for it to help. Take care and thank you so much for leaving a comment. You are a dear!

I don't know if you have a policy about brands, but Aldi's canned corn seems to be in a class by itself (I tested several other brands) and is way cheap. I like their creamed corn, too.

Hi Jeff! My policy about brands is, if you use one and you like it, just let me know. I agree about Aldi Canned corn AND just about everything else I've tried from Aldi! LOVE them! Plus they are so affordable! Thanks for letting me know!

Nutmeg. Seriously. Add a pinch of nutmeg. Not too much, you're not baking a pumpkin pie. It goes really well with corn. I always add it to my corn bread. Again, a scant 1/16th - 1/4 t depending on how much you're making. Yum!

I want to try your canned corn, Wendi, it sounds delicious! However, our tape water here in Phoenix is terrible!! You mentioned in your recipe to use broth, but ..... what kind of broth????? Please help!! XOXO

Hi Diane!

There are two solutions to your problem, best I can figure, either use bottled water instead of tap water or..... use chicken broth. Sorry, I should have specified that. It won't hurt if you use vegetable broth or beef broth, but personally, I like chicken broth best and I think that is what works best. Hope this helps!!! :)
