Mimi's Southern Style Corn

12 mins (prep 2, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
8 servings
This is my mother's famous corn recipe. I'm not sure where she got it but everyone loves it. I get requests each holiday season to make it. You can use canned corn or fresh, but Mom says you have to use Green Giant Shoepeg if using canned. No other corn matches that one.NOTE: Cook no higher than medium heat as this has a tendency to stick and burn. Stir often to reduce sticking.
