I first encountered at my cousin's son graduation party. I love corn, but this was.. something extra. I couldn't stop eating it - it was just so creamy, savory and flavorful. I had to know what was in it.
I kind of wish I hadn't asked, because the answer? Corn, leeks, crème fraîche and... MSG. Well, not straight MSG, but close enough - the Swedish spice mix Aromat, which is mostly salt and MSG. I don't think I've ever owned a jar before, but this made me run to the store to get some.
MSG might not be the best thing to eat though, I realize that this will be a very occasional treat. But a treat nonetheless!
If you want to give it a try - I used two small cans of corn, 200 ml crème fraîche, half of a large leek and a few tablespoons of the spice mix.
