Everyone in the South has their own version of fresh fried corn.. or Southern Style Cream Corn as some call is ours...It's Daddy's favorite.

 6 ears fresh corn

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup water

1 teaspon sugar

1 tablespoon flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon coarsley ground pepper

3/4 cup milk

Cut corn from cobs.  Scrape cobs with a sharp knife to remove milk.  Melt butter in skillet, stir in corn and corn milk, water and sugar.Cook corn until done.  Stir in flour, salt and pepper.  Gradually add milk, stirring constantly.  Cook a few minutes longer.  Do not boil.

Here's a tip...

Cut the corn off the cob in a large bowl to keep it from flying all over the kitchen...

I know we're late for Sunday Supper...we've been busy cooking...My plan was to quickly take pictures of the rest of the meal that Sister had prepared when she got here and step away and finish the post...Just talked to Mother and Daddy feels rotten...making the perfect blog post just doesn't seem's going to be a wonderful meal and we are going to love on Daddy, and that is what is important!

Wishing you all a very Happy Father's Day!

It's your turn.  Let's Talk!
