Fresh Sweet Corn Fritters

Do you have some weeks that are just busier than others? That was mine last week. Trying to get dinner ready was trying, but I did manage to make these sweet corn fritters.

Here in central Florida where our other house is, we can get corn on the cob twice a year - April thru May and then again in October thru November. There is a great farm near us that sells it and so when my husband brought home two dozen, I knew we could not eat all of them as corn on the cob.

I have made corn fritters before, but never with fresh corn.  I have used frozen and they are good, but the fresh corn was awesome.

They go together very quickly since you put the corn kernels in a food processor or blender like Vitamix. I used my food processor and it was super easy.  As the recipe says, don't rush the cooking time. We ate ours plain, but you can serve them with smashed avocado, salsa or sour cream.

This makes a nice and easy side dish.

If you have access to fresh corn, try these fritters, you will not be disappointed.
