Southern Fried Corn

You just can't beat good home style Southern cookin'! This recipe is very time consuming but will worth it. I also need to add that it's best if cooked in a cast iron skillet.

Southern Fried Corn
serves/makes= 6

6 ears fresh corn
1/4 cup cup bacon drippings
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

Note: if you don't have bacon drippings (not everyone keeps these), you can use a little bit (1/8 cup maybe) of vegetable oil.

1) Shuck corn, wash, and remove silk. Cut corn cobs in half and then cut kernels off. (This is called cream-style cutting)

2) Scrape juice out of the corn cob into the corn. Heat drippings in large skillet. Add corn, flour, sugar, water, milk, salt and pepper. Bring misxture to a boil, stirring constantly.

3)Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 20-25min until corn is tender. If necessary, add a little hot water.
Note: I used my cast iron skillet which doesn't have a lid to cover with so I just reduced the time to 15min and it came out great!
