- 6 ears sweet corn
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon bacon grease
- 4 slices uncooked bacon
- sugar, salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter and bacon grease over medium heat in a large (preferably cast iron) skillet. Add the bacon, and when it starts to cook, stir in the corn. Simmer 8-10 minutes, until tender, stirring frequently. If the corn seems to be drying out, add a bit of hot water (or milk) to keep it moist. If the corn is not particularly sweet, sprinkle on sugar to taste. Add salt and pepper to taste.
