Fresh Corn Fritters
Though I'd never turn down boiled or grilled corn on the cob, dripping with butter and grainy with salt, sometimes I like a little variety. Particularly when I need something starchy to go with dinner. Did you know that an ear of fresh corn, a little flour, a little cornmeal and some bacon fat makes the most delicious side dish?
Or that said side dish, when eaten as leftovers, can cure a cheap wine hangover obtained while watching "The Meaning of Life"?
1 c fresh corn, cut off the cob
1/4 c milk
1 t sugar
1/4 t kosher salt
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 c cornmeal
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1. Cut corn off the cob. Best way to do this is to stand it on the skinny end in a giant bowl and cut downwards through the kernels.
