Tom Colicchio has a technique where he makes cream of corn without cream or milk of any sort. He uses the natural starch in the corn to make a 'cream' of sorts. Anyone tried this? I believe the recipe is in the Craft cookbook.

Alton Brown's creamed corn recipe is quite excellent. But do leave out the turmeric, which doesn't add anything but a sort-of-unpleasant fluorescent yellow color. The key to this recipe is to scrape off just the tops of the kernels, then scrape out the corn "milk" from the kernels. You should end up with a very honeycombey looking ear of corn.
