  • 6 ears - white corn
  • 1 cups - water
  • 3 cups - milk
  • 1 cups - white sugar
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla extract
  • 1 - pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons - cornstarch
  • Directions:

    Step 1
    Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add corn and cook uncovered until kernels are slightly softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain.

    Step 2
    Remove kernels from the cob using a knife and transfer to a blender. Add 1 cup water, or 1/2 cup if blending in two batches, and blend until pureed. Strain mixture into a bowl using a fine sieve; discard the solids. Run liquid once more through a clean sieve.

    Step 3
    Stir in milk; transfer mixture to a medium nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat until milk is heated through. Stir in sugar, vanilla extract, and salt; bring to a gentle simmer.

    Step 4
    Reduce heat to low and combine 1/4 cup of the hot liquid with cornstarch. Pour mixture into the skillet and stir constantly until atole begins to thicken to desired consistency, about 5 minutes. Immediately remove from heat. Pour into pudding bowls, soup bowls, or cups.
