From fresh yellow corn, or mixed white. This fried dish is very sweet and the only way I like my corn. I like to season with more salt and pepper before serving.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cut kernels off corn cobs into the skillet with a knife. Scrape the cobs with the back of the knife to release corn "milk" and any remaining kernels into the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fry until corn is hot and tender, about 10 minutes.


Cook's Notes:

You can use sweet cream or unsweetened butter.

This will freeze well to use another day. I sometimes cook up a whole bushel of corn and freeze it.

This is so delicious that I am required to make corn this way EVERYTIME! I switched it up a bit and eliminated the salt and add bacon bits. You can add chopped bell pepper too to give it some color and texture. You can always expand on a good thing! Read More

I've been making this since I was a little girl (67 now ), but I fry a little chopped bacon first then add the corn on top. Read More
