Mark Boughton Photography / styling: Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail Everyone, it seems, grew up on a version of this simple stir-fried corn. Kids adore it. Don't use a nonstick skillet for this, as you want the corn to stick to the pan to caramelize the corn's sugars and create yummy little clumps of "corn-y-ness." Ingredients 4 to 6 -- ears fresh corns2 tablespoons butter1/2 cup sliced green onion1/2 teaspoon salt -- Freshly ground black pepper Instructions Cut kernels off cobs and scrape off milky bits. You should have about 3 cups corn. Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet. Add onion and corn and sauté until corn is cooked and slightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
