  • In a medium bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • In a large bowl beat the egg. Stir in the milk and reserved corn liquid (or water).
  • Stir in the dry ingredients and blend well.
  • Stir in the corn (if using frozen corn, defrost first) and green onions. For best results, refrigerate batter for 30 minutes.

  • Dip a utensil into the hot oil to coat and then measure out 1 rounded tablespoon of the cornmeal batter into the pan.

  • Remove fritters from the pan, drain on paper towels and transfer to warming platter.
  • Serve warm with garnish of green onion slices and red pepper flakes if desired. Season with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Yield: I eat these too fast to remember how many fritters the recipe yields! Also, be sure your cornmeal is fresh.
