This is a very simple dessert made with corn. In Brazil this kind of dessert is mainly served in the month of June in parties called “Festa Juninas”, which celebrates popular saints like Saint John, Peter and so on. These celebrations are also important in North Europe country, such as Denmark, Finland, Sweden and in some extent in Ireland, Britain, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain. Since it is corn season…here we are!
4 ear of corn
1 ½ cup milk
4 tablespoon sugar
½ tablespoon butter
Remove the kernel of the corn. Place ½ of the kernels in the blender with half of the milk and blend for approximately 3 minutes.
Strain the corn mixture in a pan. Do the same thing with the other half of the corn kernels and milk.
Place the corn milk in a medium heat, add the sugar and the butter. Stir constantly, until bubbling. The corn milk will be of a creamy consistency. Pour into small ramekins, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Serve warm or cold.
Did you know that corn is used to produce fuel alcohol? The fuel alcohol or biofuel is added to gasoline as additive, so the gasoline burns cleaner, reducing air pollution.
