PREVIOUS: Farm Fresh Fried Corn NEXT: Fresh Corn Fritters

Ingredients (3)

  • 1 or more ears of corn
  • butter (optional)
  • grated cheese (optional)

This dish has the look and texture of light, fluffy polenta with the taste of sweet corn.

As a side dish, use one large ear of corn per person. The more flavorful the corn, the more flavorful the polenta.

This is very delicate and would be lovely topped with lobster, scallops or mushrooms. However, it is wonderful on its own or with a bit of butter or grated cheese to taste.
