After cutting the kernels from fresh corn, scrape the knife blade down each cob to get all the milky liquid.

How to Make It

Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add fresh corn kernels, and sauté 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Stir in sugar and salt and freshly ground pepper.

A couple of tablespoons of bacon grease improves this greatly. I've also added diced bell peppers and/or diced fresh tomatoes at times with very good results. Love it! A great southern favorite.

This is a quick easy change from boiling sweet corn or cooking it on the grill. The addition of the sugar is gives the corn a "caramel" corn taste without being too sweet. Result: tastes awesome and is FAST to make!
