DIRECTIONS

  • Shuck the corn.
  • Working with one cob at a time hold over a bowl and cut away the kernels in layers (you don't want to end up with whole kernels).
  • Scrape the knife down the cob to "milk" it.
  • Heat the butter in a Dutch oven or other large heavy pot over medium-high heat then add the onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes.
  • Sauté until onions are transparent (about 15 minutes).
  • Stir in the salt and pepper then add the corn and the milk (from the cobs) and stir well.
  • Reduce heat to medium and cook until the corn is tender (20-30 minutes).
  • If mixture begins to dry out before corn is tender, add a little milk and butter.
  • Notes: Sometimes I add some andouille or smoked pork sausage or tasso just to give it a change of taste.
