Today is National Corn Fritter Day. What better reason to pick up some fresh corn and make corn fritters as a side or a first course? (When corn isn’t in season, use canned or frozen kernels, drained.)

Yield: 4 servings.


  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives
  • 1 teaspoon minced tomato, sundried tomato, roasted red
    pepper or red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash paprika
  • Cooking oil for deep frying
  • Optional garnish: maple syrup
  • Preparation

    1. BEAT the egg yolk until thick. Add corn kernels, chives and tomato/red pepper.

    2. SIFT together and stir into the corn mixture: flour, baking powder, salt and paprika.

    3. BEAT the egg white until stiff and fold into corn mixture.

    4. DROP the batter from a tablespoon into oil heated to 370°F. Cook until a delicate golden brown, turning once. Drain on a paper towel.
