Here’s a fun recipe for the crop of corn that’s coming in any day now!!! You can always use frozen corn…I’m partial to white corn for this recipe. It’s a bit different maybe…now don’t judge…when I say it’s fried…because Fried Corn is sooooo good! It’s adapted from Southern Living, The Ultimate Cookbook...which has been my “go-to” cookbook for almost ten years. For that matter, Southern Living cookbooks have been the standard in my family for as long as I can remember.
12 ears fresh corn (I like white corn…you can use 2 bags of frozen corn)
8 – 10 slices of bacon
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 -1 teaspoon ground pepper
*Cut corn from cob…set aside
*Cook bacon until crispy…(use large skillet). Reserve about 3 tablespoons of bacon drippings.
*Crumble or chop bacon into little pieces.
*Cook corn, butter , salt and pepper in bacon drippings over med. heat for app. 20 minutes or until corn is a bit brown. Stir often.
*Stir in bacon pieces. You can serve immediately or even put into a baking dish and heat in the oven for 15-20 minutes right before serving. (Works a little better to make and serve immediately!)
