Fried Green Corn

Heather says:

I was browsing through some of my hometown blogs and stumbled upon this entry at A Yankee in a Southern Kitchen. It was the perfect use for the abundance of Silver Queen corn I picked up the other day. Don’t be fooled by this absurdly simple recipe, it tastes of summer.


  • 5 ears of corn, shucked and cut from the cob
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat.

Add the kernels and cook until heated through, approximately 5 – 7 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Ridiculously simple, but oh so good.


P.S. If you have a moment check out this week’s Festival of Frugality.

    We love corn this way… but we do it in bacon grease instead of butter.

    As a great way to add the 'extra touch' to this simple dish, add 1/4 cup milk or cream (for richness) and 1-2 Tablespoons of honey. You can also cook it quite a bit longer to reduce the cream and caramelize the sugar in the corn (and honey).

    Ok, I keep coming back to look at this and now I’m going to have to try it. I love corn. I love butter. Enough said.

    Crazy question: Do you boil the corn first or not? I’d LOVE to try this, sounds yummy!
