Devilish Corn Sauce

This recipe is from an ad in a 1967 Family Circle. A great example of a company trying to make its product into something it's not. Cream Corn is not a sauce and the ingredients they have you adding to it just makes it sound repulsive. I could maybe go with the horseradish and mustard but when they got to the pickles that just grossed me out.


Devilish Corn Sauce
"Great news for corned beef!" Not!

1 No 303 can (17 oz.) Del Monte Brand Cream Style Corn

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

1 teaspoons prepared mustard

1/4 cup Del Monte Fresh Cucumber Pickle Chips

2 tablespoon pickle liquid

Heat Del Monte Cream Style Corn to a simmer. Add the rest of the ingredients. Taste; then salt and pepper if needed, but don't over salt. Ladle over "boiled dinner of corned beef and cabbage, onions, carrots." Serves 4 to 6. For fun, you could serve the bowl of corn sauce as shown, nested in outer leaves of a Savoy cabbage.

No amount of cabbage garnish is going to make this recipe fun to eat.

This is very bad news indeed both for the corned beef and the people who wish to eat it.

A brilliant find though! I love this kind of thing (to look at, not to implement)
