This recipe brings back memories. My mom and older sister used to make these and they are yummy!

Top Review by Karen..

I have added salt and pepper to the recipe. I am used to having them as a savory dish, so salt and pepper were always part of it. However, because some people serve them with maple syrup, etc. I did not list s & p when I first posted. Also, the kind of corn you use is important...sometimes the corn itself is tasteless. I am sorry if anyone made these and they turned out bad...I know they can be a lot of work :), but I also know they can be really good.
