This recipe was handed down to my mother from her mother to me and my sisters. It is over 65 years old. Delicious and YES fattening.... I hope you will enjoy. It is Addicting, to say the least ! My family is from the South and we do have a few Northerners in our big family. They thought fried corn was just ridiculous and looked like mush--lol-- Now, all we hear is, PLEASE COOK YOUR FRIED CORN AND MAKE ALOT !! If you wish to make a bigger batch of this, use at least 24 ears of corn and add the water & flour to make a consistency that almost will look kinda runny. The flour is what will thicken.
