December 27th, 2013 by alice  Tags: , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 12ears freshsweet corn
  2. 6large ripetomatoes(peeled, seeded, roughly chopped)
  3. 2mediumonions(chopped fine)
  4. 2largebell peppers(chopped fine)
  5. 1/2lbbutter
  6. 2teaspoonssalt
  7. 2teaspoonsground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Shuck the corn.
  2. Working with one cob at a time hold over a bowl and cut away the kernels in layers (you don’t want to end up with whole kernels).
  3. Scrape the knife down the cob to”milk” it.
  4. Heat the butter in a Dutch oven or other large heavy pot over medium-high heat then add the onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes.
  5. Sauté until onions are transparent (about 15 minutes).
  6. Stir in the salt and pepper then add the corn and the milk (from the cobs) and stir well.
  7. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the corn is tender (20-30 minutes).
  8. If mixture begins to dry out before corn is tender, add a little milk and butter.
  9. Notes: Sometimes I add some andouille or smoked pork sausage or tasso just to give it a change of taste.
