Amish food is simply wonderful! I have this recipe from a great cookbook called The Best of Amish Cooking by Phyllis Pellman Good.
Corn Fritters are of two main varieties - doughy little balls, laced with corn that are deep fried and, the pancake type that are made of more corn than batter and browned in a skillet. Family tradition determines which kind are served. Nutrition would nod in favor of the pancake variety.
