Ingredients

  • 4 ears corn, shucked
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Pinch sugar, optional
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Method

Step 1

Working over a shallow bowl, cut off corn kernels, then scrape each cob with a knife to extract juice. Discard cobs.

Step 2

Puree 2 cups kernels, reserving remainder, and all of juice in a food processor 2 minutes, scraping down sides. Force through a fine sieve into a bowl and discard solids. Stir in salt, cornstarch, and sugar.

Step 3

Cook onion in butter in a saucepan over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until softened. Add reserved kernels and water and simmer briskly, covered, stirring occasionally, until corn is crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 4

Stir corn puree again, then stir into kernels. Bring to a boil, stirring, and simmer, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. (If desired, thin with water.) Season with pepper and stir in chives.
