Very good! I did not run the slightly thawed corn thru food processor. Perhaps not as creamy, but I like the texture better and it saves a step and some cleanup. Added a small amount of chopped green pepper and minced onion. Great side dish that is fairly quick and easy.

I am not a fan of the lima bean so I'll use edamame

the frozen shoepeg, is it processed while frozen or is it at room temp and drained?
