Fried Corn
(From Soul Food Cookbook)


6-8 Large Ears of sweet Yellow corn (Frozen Corn may be substituted)

2 Large Green Peppers, diced

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup shortening (cooking oil may be substituted)


Shuck and de-silk the ears of corn, then rinse.

Using a sharp knife remove the kernels from the cob, scaping to get it all.

Mix green peppers, flour, sugar, salt and pepper together coating the corn well with the mixture.

Heat shortening or oil until one kernel dropped in it sizzles.

Put your corn in the skillet and fry until the corn is tender and the flour starts to brown.

Stir frequently to prevent the flour from sticking.

Note: You may want to cover the skillet with a lid to help tenderize the corn evenly.
