To shuck the corn, just divide the silk fibers in half and then pull downward bringing the outer layer of the corn down too.

It's super easy to do when you are holding the corn against you when you do it.

I'm confused. When did the butter go in? Or are you frying these lovely babies up in butter rather than oil? I want mine to be as perfect as these look!

oh, wow, sorry edited the instructable to correct this. When you mix the flour and the dry mixture together, you add the butter then.

Let me know how yours turn out!

I made a guess and added the butter then--and the results were so good we've decided we're adding this as a side dish to the small number we make over and over. We plan to try different seasonings to match the meal. Thanks so much!

Glad you liked it!

Mine came out a little rubbery. I think I had too much liquid. I used canned mexi-corn (drained). They were tasty!


I haven't used any canned corn with this recipe. Glad it still turned out tasty!

God, I love corn fritters with lots of new, genuine, Vermont maple syrup. <sigh>
