Sweet Corn-Deep Fry

"Summer and corn on the cob! Yipee and Yep MadCity Dale is having fun like a kid on the Sweet Corn Farm (Ideal Acres) back home in Indiana! In a heavy Dutch oven preheat peanut oil or other oil to 375 degrees F. Make a batter by combining the 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/2 cup buttermilk and 3 beaten eggs. Combine flour, garlic powder, salt and black pepper (Dale's LUV seasoning) in a medium bowl or pan and set aside. Dip corn-on-the-cob ears into cornmeal batter to coat. Roll in flour mixture. With cooking tongs, holding at a distance, slowly place a few ears of corn in hot oil, 1 at the time. Fry for about 3 minutes per ear or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with corn holders in each end and in corn dishes (if you have them) while hot. Season as desired with salt and black pepper."

Having spent the last 40 years selling recreational equipment in Southern Wisconsin, I have closed my business and finally have time to cook. I never sold anything that anyone ever "had to have". SO NOW I'M LEARNING HOW TO PREPARE THINGS, FOLKS HAVE-TO-HAVE! Been great fun and love to expermint. My wife says I cook weirdsville. But, someone likes my cooking, and that's what is important to me!
