This old family recipe is based on dried sweet corn, a Pennsylvania Dutch
staple, essential to the culture.
4 cups dried corn (see Note)
4 cups milk
3 cups heavy cream
3 tsp. sugar
3 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter
Freshly ground black pepper
1. Place dried corn in a large bowl and cover with milk and heavy
cream. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
2. Transfer corn mixture to a large saucepan. Add sugar, salt, and
butter. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30
minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper just before

The corn Peg Murphy is looking for is John Cope's
Toasted Dried Sweet Corn, a Pennsylvania Dutch Food
from Lancaster Co. (John Cope's Food Products, Inc.
Rheems. PA17570) We always have it for Thanksgiving
and Christmas. There are two ways to prepare it...
Stewed Corn...Add 3 cups of boiling water to one cup
of John Cope's Dried Corn and soak 2 hours or longer.
Add 2 teaspoons of sugar, salt and butter to taste.
Let simmer a half hour or longer. Add 1/2 cup of milk
or cream and cook 5 minutes. Serves 4 to 5. OR..
Baked Corn Supreme is the recipe our family prefers
and the one I believe she is looking for...Grind 1 cup
(5 oz) of John Cope's Dried Corn in a blender or food
chopper. Add 3 cups of cold milk, 2 tablespoons of
melted butter, 1 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of
sugar, and 2 well beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly and pour
into a buttered casserole. Bake for 50 minutes in an
oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees. Of
course, when our large family gets together for the
holidays we multiply the recipe four or five times.
When we serve it to guest the always rave about it.
Hope this helps... Dione from MD
