I used sweet corn (silver queen), and this was a little too sweet. The second time I made it, I skipped the sugar and it turned out delicious!
This was delicious! I skipped the bacon drippings, used canned corn instead of fresh, and doubled everything in order to feed my large family. They all loved it and requested I make it again very soon!
I used fresh corn, salt, black pepper, white pepper and ground cayenne pepper. This was delicious and will make any time we have fresh corn.
