Southern Fried Corn

This could be a repeat from last summer.  Regardless it bears another post.  Our corn is coming to an end for the season and if you still have corn this is a must try.  My wonderful David the produce guy only raises Silver Queen and Silver Princess.  My all time favorite corn.  That's what I use for this, but any fresh corn will be fine.
