Fast and Easy to Make, Corn Fritters.
This is a recipe that might have come from the Wagon Trains that went out West. The ingredients last long and travel (or store) very well. I could picture a woman in her bonnet baking the potato in the wood fire pit. Scooping out the flour from a white flour sack that was in the Chuck Wagon and taking the corn off a cob on a thick wood cut stump. This generation does have it's problems but can you imagine riding along on a flat wheeled wagon and then having to stop to gather what you need for dinner, out on a open prairie? I think we have to be grateful for what we have and stop thinking about what we wish we had.
Back in the days of prairie travel, a woman only had a cast iron dutch oven and had to fry on the upside down lid of it, or cooked her fritters on a garden spade! We, on the other hand have way too many gadgets in our kitchens and storage spaces. Recently I realized that I had three crock pots! One was given to me when a friend was moving. Another one I picked up at a yard sale, because I forgot my friend gave me one. The third crock pot was an oval shape that another friend gave me. I took it home because mine was round and thought I might need an oval one, some day. I'm bringing one of the round crock pots to a friend who never had a crock pot. I even had two similar crock pot cook books, so I'll be giving her one of the books as well.
When I get together with my friend from Tennessee, all the old time recipes come to mind and we just start cooking from memory. Once in a while we have to put the thinking caps on to remember what we need to pull it all together. Between us, we usually figure it out.
The recipe in this hub is one from my friends, mothers collection. Her mother passed away a few years ago and we want to make as many recipes as my friend can remember, so we can pass them along to you.
I am the type of person who likes to put recipes together with as few ingredients as possible. You can add what ever spices you like to this recipe, it's very forgiving. If you do add your own spices or other things and the mixture seems dry just add a little more milk, until you get the fritter mixture to where you can handle it.
A drained can of corn can also be used if you don't have any fresh corn on the cob. We use canned corn when fresh corn is out of season and someone is in the mood for corn fritters.
Corn Fritters make a nice side dish. Usually, there are no left overs. I forget to make them, until someone says..."Hey, you haven't made corn fritters in a long time."
Until we meet again... Francesca27
