Southern Fried Corn

There's not much better than fresh summer corn.  And while I love some corn on the cob (preferably slathered in butter), I'm not a huge fan of gnawing on the cob and getting all sorts of bits in my teeth.  So this recipe combines the best of all worlds - delicious sweet corn, no bits in your teeth, and lots of amazing flavor.

Southern Fried Corn

4 ears corn
2 to 3 tablespoons bacon grease or butter
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Fresh chopped parsley or chives, for garnish (optional)

Cut the corn off of the ears and set aside.  Heat the bacon grease over medium-high heat until melted and shimmering.  Add the cut corn, then scrape the milk from the cobs into the frying pan.  Season with the salt and pepper.  Fry the corn until it starts to brown, about 7 or 8 minutes.

Makes 4 servings
