Fresh corn is delicious and easy to prepare. Boil it, grill it or try this yummy fresh skillet corn recipe.


  • corn - 12 ears (yields 5 cups of kernels/juice)
  • butter - 1/3 cup (or margarine)
  • water - varies
  • sugar - 1 tsp
  • salt - 1 tsp
  • pepper - 1 tsp (fresh ground is best)


  1. Husk corn and clean off the silks.
  2. Get a big bowl. Use a sharp knife, and cut corn from the cob into the bowl. You'll want to cut about half way deep into the corn. Then, turn the knife over to the non-cutting side and rub up and down the cob to get the rest of the pulp.
  3. Melt butter in large skillet. Pour in corn. Add enough water to make a gravy consistency. The amount of water you will need varies depending on the type of corn so slowly add water.
  4. Add the seasonings — sugar, salt, pepper.
  5. fresh-fried-cornCook on high for 5 minutes. Stir during this part of the recipe.
  6. Reduce heat to low and cover with lid. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally — about every 5 minutes.
This recipe is a bit like creamed corn, but if you've only had creamed corn from a can, then this is WAY better. This article originally appeared at Suite 101.
