My Grandma Logan's & James's Fried Corn

Sherri Williams


This is my Grandma Logan's Fried Corn recipe as I remember it. My brother-in-law James use to make the best fried corn, also. I dedicate this recipe to both of them. This is "Healthy for The Soul" country cooking. This is not a "DIET" recipe for the health conscious. This is simply Good Frickin' Eatin'!!! Happy Cooking! sw:)
