"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Southern Fried Corn, by Tere Railey, is from Nana's Dishes,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
8 ears absolutely fresh sweet corn 1/2 cup butter 1 cup whole milk or cream 1/2 teaspoon sugar salt and pepper to taste
Cut corn from the cob with a sharp knife. Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add sugar, corn, salt and pepper. Saute the corn until brown bits begin to form in the corn (carmelization of sugars). Lower the heat and add the milk. Simmer until milk is reduced.
This dish takes a bit of work but is well worth it. It is a traditional summer dish in our family.
