  • 1 dozen ears fresh sweet corn
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1-1/2 cups onions, finely chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk

Shuck the corn and remove all of the corn silk. Hold each cob over a bowl and cut the kernels away in layers (don’t cut 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 sauté 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 more minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Serves 8-10.
