Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, corn. These are common staples within the American Thanksgiving spread. When I imagine an image of Thanksgiving, I instantly envision corn in the backdrop along with the plethora of foodstuffs. However, I must admit that there hasn't been any one recipe that has stood out over the years that beckoned to be present on the Thanksgiving plate. I might even categorize a corn dish as an afterthought.
I sought to take a corn dish from the position of afterthought in my mind to the forefront with this tremendously simple, but delicious dish. One word to describe it? Charming.
This corn dish has just a delightful amount of sweetness that charms the plate. It will no longer live as a Thanksgiving afterthought from this day on!
