I found this recipe in Reader's Digest "Like Grandma Used To Make" cookbook. It's been requested again and again. It MUST be on the table at Thanksgiving & Christmas, but it goes well with burgers on the grill or as a side for almost any meal. You can make this with fresh corn and tomato, or cheat and use frozen corn and even drained canned chopped tomato. Enjoy!
