  • 1 doz. ears fresh sweet corn
  • 8 Tbl. unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1-1/2 C finely chopped onions
  • 1 finely chopped large green pepper
  • 1 finely chopped red pepper
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Tbl. sugar
  • 1 C evaporated milk



Step 1

Shuck the corn and remove all of the cornsilk. Hold each cob over a bowl and cut the kernels away in layers (don't cut the whole kernels), then scrape the knife along the cob to get all of the "milk" out of it. Melt the butter in a large saucepan or pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, celery and tomatoes and saute until the onions are transparent, about 10 minutes. Stir in the salt and peppers, then add the corn and milk from the cobs, the sugar and evaporated milk and stir well. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the corn is tender, about 10-15 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.
