We recently went to a Family Reunion in Virginia and there are some good cooks in the Spain family. We talked and reminisced over plates laden with food and Cousin Betsy asked if I had tasted her fried corn. No, I had not and I told her I had never heard of fried corn. She was surprised.
When I came home, I fried about half a packet of bacon (6 oz) and removed the bacon and some of the grease.
I removed the kernels from the cob while the bacon was sizzling in the pan. In addition, I finely chopped up some green pepper harvested from my garden. I also pulled up an onion with a beautiful bloom (for table decoration) and also finely chopped the onion. Finely, I chopped up some basil, too.
I carefully dropped the onions and pepper into the heated bacon grease (I didn't need much grease, no reason to indulge), stirred it around and added the corn and mixed well. For how long?
I prefer the vegetables to be on the crispy side. I stirred until the vegetables were heated through and through; dished the corn up and served it with the bacon to my husband. He nodded in approval and I must say, it tasted pretty good.
