Have the rest of the meal ready as this takes just minutes and is best absolutely fresh from the stove. Each person will eat at least one ear of corn. Method 1. With a sharp, French knife, cut the base of the cob flat so it won't tip or roll. 2. With the cob standing up, carefully cut the kernels off the cob, from top to bottom, being careful not to get pieces of the hard cob. It doesn't matter if the kernels are connected as they will separate while cooking. 3. Heat a large fry-pan, melting 3/4 tsp. butter per ear of corn. Do not let it burn or brown. 4. Add the corn and quickly stir-fry the kernels. If it takes two minutes, that's a lot. Honestly, when the corn is so fresh, you are simply heating it as it does not require much cooking time. 5. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
