Fried Corn

  • Serves

    serves 4-6


We found that supersweet corn-with its high sugar content-fries up best.


  • Vegetable oil
  • 8 ears supersweet corn
  • Salt


Step 1

Pour oil into a large pot to a depth of 2" and heat over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 365 degrees on a candy thermometer.

Step 2

Shuck corn and fry, several ears at a time, until most of the kernels are deep golden, 3-4 minutes per batch.

Step 3

Drain corn on paper towels and season to taste with salt, if you like.
