Hot Honey Skillet Corn

Our sweet summer corn has been harvested and packed into the freezer for special side dishes like this one: Hot Honey Skillet Corn.  The trick to using frozen corn is to thaw it fully and then squeeze dry gently with paper towels. Otherwise, the corn will get mushy and overcooked.

This corn is best served the minute you get done cooking it. Piping hot. While the butter is still melting into the corn. Oh my.

Another trick is that I always cook this in my cast iron skillet.  I love how the cast iron carmelizes the sugars in the corn. Those little bitty brown bits are my favorite part of the dish.  Even though I said to serve it immediately, my husband loves the leftovers for breakfast, with a bit of cream or half and half stirred into it.
