Sweet Corn Sauce
Makes about 4 cups
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ⅛ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook for 5 minutes. Gradually stir in wine; add thyme sprigs. Cook until wine is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add corn and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until corn is tender, about minutes. Discard thyme sprigs.
  2. In the container of a blender, pour corn mixture. Secure lid on blender and remove center piece of lid to let steam escape; place a clean towel over opening in lid to avoid splatters. Process until mixture is almost smooth. Strain mixture into same skillet, discarding solids.
  3. Stir in cream, chopped thyme, and Old Bay; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
