Mamaliga, North Abraxas Style

Despite what the menu at North Abraxas says, this is not really Mamaliga. this is best described as Creamed Corn. nevertheless, when made from fresh sweet corn, no one can complain!

5 ears of corn, 1 litre skim milk, 100 grams butter
salt, pepper, sour cream.
Box Grater, Large frying pan

1. grate the corn. all of it. another way is to cut the kernels with a knife, and use the blunt side of the blade to scrape the stalk.

2. melt the butter in the frying pan and add the grated corn. let it sweat a little on medium heat, but do not allow the butter to burn

3. when the corn absorbed all the butter, start adding milk, a little at a time while stirring. keep adding milk and stirring until the corn reaches a creamy and soft consistency.

4. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, and garnish with chopped chives or sauteed cherry tomatoes.
