What are the 4 types of corn?
You may think that all corn is the same. However, there are four basic types of corn, and each one has a different use.
- Dent corn (also called field corn) is the corn that’s the most widely grown in the U.S. It is mainly used for feeding livestock, but can also be found in some food products.
- Flint corn or Indian corn, is similar to dent corn. This hard-shelled corn is pretty because it comes in a wide variety of colors. It is grown mostly in Central and South America and is the corn you see used for decorations in the fall.
- Popcorn is a kind of flint corn. It has a hard outer shell and a center that is soft and starchy. When exposed to heat, the moisture inside the kernel steams and builds up enough pressure to explode the kernel. Popcorn is unique in its taste and popability.
- Sweet corn is the kind we eat on the cob or use in cooking. This corn is almost all soft starch, contains more sugar than other corn types, and you can’t pop it. Other corns are picked when the kernels are dry and mature, but sweet corn is picked and eaten while the ears are still in the immature stage and the kernels are tender.
How to Make Baked Creamed Corn Casserole
This is an incredibly easy recipe to make.
- Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
- Then get a medium-sized mixing bowl and add in the whole kernel corn (drained), cream corn, sour cream, Jiffy corn muffin mix, butter, and eggs.
- Now stir everything together until it is well combined.
- Spray an 8×8-inch or 10×8-inch inch baking dish with nonstick baking spray and pour in the batter.
- Bake the casserole at 350 degrees for an hour.
Why is my corn pudding watery?
The creamed corn pudding casserole should not be watery. If this happens to you there are a couple of things to look at.
First thing is, did you drain the can of whole kernel corn? This can should be drained before adding it in. Whereas the creamed corn can will not need to be drained before mixing it in with everything.
The second is, did you add too many eggs? If there are too many eggs in the casserole, it will definitely change the consistency of the pudding.
Can you make corn pudding ahead of time?
Yes! Make it up before you need it and then when you are ready, just pop it in the oven and bake it for an hour. You can also just bake it in advance and reheat it in the oven too!
What main dish goes with corn casserole?
Creamed corn casserole goes well with any protein dish! Take a look at some that I like to serve Jiffy corn casserole with:
How to Store Creamed Corn Casserole
After this recipe has been made, either place the lid on the dish if it has one or a piece of aluminum foil on top of the baking dish. Then place it in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days.
How long will corn pudding last in the refrigerator?
This creamed corn casserole will last up to 5 days when refrigerated.
Can you freeze leftover corn pudding?
Yes, you can freeze it. However, if you plan to freeze it, try making the corn pudding in either a freezer-safe dish or in a disposable dish since it will be easy to just pop it in the freezer when you are done baking it.
Cool the casserole completely before freezing it. This saves energy and keeps the temperature in your freezer from rising because a hot dish is placed in it.
Wrap the dish in plastic wrap then with aluminum foil. This will help to prevent freezer burn.
