    AngelaTN's Note:

    This has been a staple at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House in Lynchburg, Tennessee for over 100 years. Use only fresh corn for best results. I have not made this so cook times are only estimates.

      I'm always trying to "fancy-up" my food and this was *perfect*. I made the following adjustments to reduce calories: I started with 1 T bacon fat & *gasp _canned_ corn. I omitted the bacon, sugar, & butter. Still had tons of flavor. I know this diverges from the recipe, but it worked really well and I am thrilled with its taste and consistency! Thank you!

      This is corn kicked up a notch! I took this to Thanksgiving dinner at my MIL 'cause my little princess really likes corn. You now have a 13-month old fan with this recipe. Preparing the corn this way seems to heighten the sweetness of the corn, and of course, you can't go wrong with bacon. I'll most definitely make this one again. Thanks! :)

      What a GREAT corn recipe! Easy to fix and just the right sweetness! My family gorged on this and it will be a regular while the corn is fresh during its growing season here! Thanks for sharing!
