If you avoid corn on the cob because it is difficult to eat and sticks in your teeth, you have to try this! It is very tasty and the kernels just come right out of the cob whole, and they are very tender. They do not stick in your teeth at all. It’s really amazing. I had to try it to believe it. It’s also very easy to make!
Fresh ear of corn
Heat the deep fryer to 375 (that’s the highest setting on mine). Remove the husks, silk, and any bad spots form the corn. Fry for 8 minutes. Remove onto a paper towel, and sort of wrap and pat it with the towel to remove the excess grease. Rub with a stick of butter while it’s still hot. Salt and serve.
I cut mine in half so one ear makes 2 servings.
Many of you already know how much I love my deep fryer. Well, I have discovered a whole new joy in deep frying – tortilla chips!
It’s too easy! Just cut corn tortillas into quarters and throw them in the deep fryer for about one minute. Drop them in a papertowel lined bowl and salt immediately.
The first time I tried it, I was making nachos and used only salt. This time they are for dipping, so I used my own seasoning salt and some chili powder. YUM!
I plan on experimenting further, making my own tortillas, maybe trying to make something like Fritos, too. I have had tortilla chips made this way from flour tortillas, and those were great!
Of course, I love to make deep fried sweet potato chips, and we often have a big bowl of breaded okra in place of popcorn.
Then there are our deep fry fests, when we fry mushrooms, zucchini, clam strips, eggplant, basically anything we can get our hands on!
