Old Fashioned Fried Sweet Corn

Old Fashioned Fried Sweet Corn


  • 6 ears corn, silk removed and washed
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • Bacon drippings
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter


  1. Cut corn off cob, about half the thickness of the kernel, then scrape cob.
  2. Add salt, pepper and flour.
  3. Mix with 1 cup water. If too thick, add more water as the corn cooks.
  4. Pour corn mixture into a hot skillet that contains bacon drippings.
  5. As corn cooks, add butter. Cook over medium heat until corn bubbles, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Let cook for about 30 minutes, stirring often. A crust will form around and on the bottom of the skillet when done. The crust will be sweet and chewy.
