Mimi's Southern Style Corn

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

This is my mother's famous corn recipe. I'm not sure where she got it but everyone loves it. I get requests each holiday season to make it. You can use canned corn or fresh, but Mom says you have to use Green Giant Shoepeg if using canned. No other corn matches that one. NOTE: Cook no higher than medium heat as this has a tendency to stick and burn. Stir often to reduce sticking.

I cut the recipe in half but followed the recipe as written other then I used Splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. This was easy and quick to make. Different way to enjoy corn.

  3. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes.
  4. Add remaining 1/2 cup of milk before serving and stir well.
